Intro to Navigation Course - Age 16yrs+
Whether you're a seasoned navigator or a complete novice, let us guide you through the maze of maps, compasses, contours, bearings and grid references. The course will be mostly practical with real navigation problems you can commonly encounter when travelling in the hills and mountains.
The Course will be based at Ancrum, where you will do a couple of hours theory work before heading out to the local Sidlaw Hills mid/late morning. We will provide return transport to and from Ancrum, but you may take your own car if preferrable.
What do I need to bring?
Ancrum will provide all necessary first class equipment for this activity which includes boots, waterproofs, fleece, gloves and daysack. We encourage participants to wear their own gear where possible as this may be a more comfortable option. You will also need a packed lunch and plenty to drink.
This is a very much hands on practical day's course for those who are wishing to head up the hills and be safe.
