enjoyable and informative Review by Geraldine and Paul
Overall Experience
Had a great day on our beginners navigation course. Our guide Mark was extremely knowledgeable and very patient , given it was our first time attempting map reading. We covered all the basic techniques needed to navigate a route and had plenty of time to practise. The weather was perfect and the views from the route were fantastic. A really enjoyable day all round! (Posted on 19/05/2019)
Great Day Out! Review by Giacomo
Overall Experience
My wife and I did the beginners navigation course last week and had a great time learning new skills with our instructor Simon. He tailored it perfectly to our skill levels and the route we navigated was both stunning and suitably friendly given the bad weather. Simon's love for the mountains and navigation was apparent and it was a pleasure listening to him share his skills and tips with us. We were in the Lake District for a week and did this course on our second day there. The rest of the week we practiced our newly found skills and felt much more confident in the mountains following the course. Can't recommend highly enough. We'll be back for the advanced one on our next trip. Thanks again! (Posted on 25/02/2019)
Beginners Course 11/11/18 Review by Myles Carroll
Overall Experience
Neil was excellent in what turned out to be really wet conditions. Patient and providing very clear instructions, we all benefited from his extensive knowledge. I've managed to "get by" with map & compass over many years, but now feel far more confident in applying the skills more accurately. Would really recommend this to anyone who enjoys walking the fells. Great day, thank you. (Posted on 15/11/2018)
Brilliant beginners navigation day. Review by Fliss
Overall Experience
Thanks John for a fabulous autumn adventure, I had a great day navigating using a range of tools and techniques. This course has given me renewed confidence and inspired me to return and practice these skills. Thank you for giving me the confidence to build on personal experience and explore beyond this to discover new places and experiences. (Posted on 04/11/2018)
Beginners Orienteering Course Review by Janice Palmer
Overall Experience
Neil was our very patient instructor on Sunday 21st October for beginners Orienteering course - what a useful day spent learning how to read maps, use a compass and understand how to navigate our way around whilst out on the fells - although a lot to take in we feel a lot more confident finding our way around without getting lost! Neil gave us lots of tips and helpful advice and we would recommend this to beginners or anyone new to hiking/walking. A thoroughly enjoyable day thank you Neil Rod & Janice Palmer (Posted on 24/10/2018)
Great Day of Learning Review by Aidan
Overall Experience
Myself and my son did the Beginners Navigation course on Sat 13th Oct. Weather was a mixture of low cloud and lots of rain before Storm Callum hit the following day! We did the course with John who was a diamond - very patient and very informative. It was great to do the course "in the field" rather than in a "classroom setting" so we were able to put all the instructions/information to immediate use. Thank you so much John. Very highly recommended!!

All the best

Excellent day out! Review by Sean
Overall Experience
I attended the beginners course, even though in truth I was the beginner( my son in law was at instructor level but still enjoyed using the day as a revision exercise). The training was given at a slow and steady pace and there was no problem in repeating it if I requested it. The day went to plan, even down to the cloud coming in and really testing my ability.I am looking forward to future courses ( Striding edge up next - Eeeeeeeek ) I would have no hesitation in recommending anyone to attend courses such as these.
