All welcome whatever your skill level!
Ever felt that uncomfortable “Not sure where I am” feeling? Want to head out into the hills with confidence? Tired of following your leader?
Why not learn how to read a map, take a bearing with a compass, estimate how long your walk will take and go safely and confidently into the great outdoors? Give yourself and friends a boost by learning a few tricks of the trade.
Days, afternoons or evenings, it’s your course!

Freetime Outdoors Hill Skills one day.
A day in the Lakes. As much information as can be packed into a small space. From technical skills such as map and compass to emergency procedure and looking after your pals. The cost of this is a total of £150.00 a day for either one-to-one or group. A minimum of four clients and a maximum group of six is much better.
Evening Hill Skills.
A mini tour of hill skills. Working on navigation skills but throwing in plenty of other helpful hints and tips. Some of the nearer dates would involve what I call a “walk into dark”. These are always well received and build confidence for cloudy days on the tops. Cost is £65.00 for a local evening, £100.00 for Lakes. A minimum of four clients and a maximum group of six is much better.
