Some testimonials from our course participants:

”Just completed the beginners course and have just one word to describe it, ‘brilliant’. I would highly recommend this course to anyone just starting out. It’s pitched at just the right level for novices, and is a great mixture of theory and practical, so you get to put your new skills into practice! I feel confident now in setting out with my OS map and compass and exploring new routes. What makes this course extra great, is the course leaders. Very knowledgeable, friendly and good humoured! If possible I would give this course 11 out of 10!” Paula

“Just to say thank you for a great course I really enjoyed it and it has given me confidence to try some walks off the main paths. Austin was a great leader very patient and understanding and took time to explain when I didn’t quite get it.”
George

“Have to say the course on Saturday was really good and Austin was fabulous. Nice group of people on the course as well. Would defiantly recommend you.   Thanks again.”

“Just a line to thank you again for another fabulous course the other night at Curbar Gap. I learnt so much as always, as well as honing the skills I have already had.”
Keith

“Thought you would like to know that we did follow up Mike’s suggestion on Sunday and went up on Bamford Moor. We eventually found ourselves a stone circle – took a couple of goes retracting our steps and emphasised the importance of knowing exactly where you’re starting from. Our first attempt at doing a walk with only a map and a compass for a guide, and we couldn’t have done it before … It was great!”
Jenny & Karl

“Just a short note to thank you for last nights navigation course. All involved greatly enjoyed the evening and we will feel more confident in our hill walking for the experience.
I would have no hesitation in recommending your courses to others.”
Peter

“Many thanks for an excellent day today. I enjoyed the day, learnt a lot with a very affable group and the scenery was excellent – can’t ask for more really!”
Ian

“We just wanted to say a huge thank you for last night! it was a great experience that we all enjoyed and we all learnt a tremendous amount. We agreed this morning that it will help our confidence should we ever need to put these techniques into practice. Having such a competent and understanding tutor was fantastic and very reassuring.”
Merv, Deb, John & Elaine

“I just want to thank you for a thoroughly enjoyable and educational evening last Saturday. I learnt a lot – I’m amazed how much I’d forgotten having used hardly any navigation skills for nearly a year! That you can deliver clear, helpful advice and guidance, at night, in 40 mph plus winds is indeed a testament to your skills and knowledge.” Ian

“Thank you for a very well planned and informative course, really enjoyed it, and learn’t a lot. Looking forward to joining you on another in the future.” Bev
