Navigation in a Nutshell

This is a half day course for people who want a relaxed introduction to map and compass skills. Equipped with these simple skills you will feel much more confident in planning and following your own walks, whether close to home or on an independent walking holiday.

  • Follow a simple exercise to learn how holding the map correctly makes life so much easier
  • Use a compass to be certain at any junction of paths that you are heading in the right direction
  • Learn how to estimate distance using your own paces
  • Learn how to construct a route using easy to follow ‘handrails’
We stay on footpaths, walk at a gentle pace and cover no more than 5km. There’s also plenty of time for chatting.
