Date: 22nd April 2017
Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd April 2017, a level 2 walk of about 16 km with an overnight camp.
Enjoy some great mountain walking on a 2-day Mountain Skills course. The course will cover all the basic skills to get about in the UK mountains, including navigation, equipment, weather, emergency procedures, camp craft and of course, some great walking. An ideal way to learn the skills needed before taking on more remote expeditions. We will also cover skills for tackling river crossings and also include some easy and fun night time navigation to simulate poor visibility, a great skill to have.
See the link, What do I need? above for example of gear to take. (Contact me in advance if you need a loan of some gear, I have a few spare tents, sleeping bags, stoves etc)
We will meet in the car park of The Bridge of Tilt Hotel, Blair Atholl, PH18 5SU which is on the main road (B8079) as you drive through the village, at 1100. After an equipment check, we will make our way together up the single track road to the car park at Loch Moraig to begin the walk.
Blair Atholl is on the main bus and train routes from both Edinburgh and Glasgow. Car sharing is encouraged wherever possible.
Cost is £75 for adults or £50 for u18s. (u18s must be accompanied by parent or legally appointed guardian). Please contact me in advance to discuss if you are thinking of bringing any u18's.
