This is a one-day introduction to the use of the compass to help you find your way in the hills. We aim to cover the many uses of the compass to give you the confidence to get out and about in the hills both on and off path. The course is suitable for those who can read a map and have either no, or basic, compass skills. Also suitable for those who need a refresher course. The course is a step by  step guide to using a compass and we will go over the theory indoors to make the initial learning more comfortable. We will then head out into the hills to put the theory into practice. We will walk around 5 miles at a leisurely pace.

You can borrow a compass if you haven’t yet invested in one of your own (£10 returnable deposit).
