Terrain 1 Hill Walking Permit Training Course (16-18 May)

This course will help refine your navigation, group management and planning skills to enable you to go on to T1 permit assessment.  As a rough guide to experience requirements, leaders should have done at least 10 hill walks at munro level or 15 walks at Bennachie / Scolty level. The course is from Friday 7pm – Sunday 4pm, will be based in accommodation in Monymusk and there will be a small charge of around £40 to cover an evening meal and accommodation.  For further details and to register interest, contact Louise Henderson, hill walking adviser (meloui64@googlemail.com)
