Courses and Guided Walks

Most of my Mountain Leader work is freelance for other organisations however I can also run bespoke private walking days for clients. These include guided walks, navigation courses and corporate team building/wellbeing walks. Each day can be organised for individuals or groups. Contact me and I'd be more than happy to discuss your requirements.

Navigation Courses

I am a registered Director and Course Provider for the Bronze and Silver NNAS Navigation Award Scheme and I hold the NNAS Navigation Tutor Award.

The National Navigation Award Scheme (NNAS) is a personal performance scheme for all ages to learn navigation skills which then allows people to gain confidence to get out and enjoy the countryside. I am an approved provider of the Beginner level (Bronze) and Intermediate (Silver). They are fantastic 2 day courses and I can tailor a package and location to suit you. To find out more visit the NNAS website.

I also run a popular 1 day ‘Introduction to Navigation / Map Reading’ course which covers basic navigation & map reading techniques. These introductory days are ideal for those with no experience navigating with a map. You can learn a huge amount in 1 day with me, enough to not be scared of maps any more and so that you can begin to plan your own routes.

Guided Walks

Ever wanted to climb the highest mountain in England, Scafell Pike; reach the summit of Helvellyn, voted Britain’s most popular walk in 2018 or how about the Yorkshire Three Peaks? If you have a mountain hike in mind and need a guide for the day please get in touch.
