The Longest Journey Begins with a Single Step

Pentland Outdoor Navigation courses take place in the Pentland Hills, Edinburgh.

I provide a relaxed approach to developing your navigational skills, going back to basics. 

Navigation courses can help you:-

  • Gain confidence at Map Reading in different weather conditions and nights.
  • Develop and enhance navigation skills and practice.
  • Appreciate and enjoy the surrounding countryside.
  • To become a competent map-reader and land navigator is not beyond anyone's capabilities, all it takes is practice and effort by the individual.

Please follow all the usual walking safety advice.

Enjoy the experience, leave behind only footprints and return with new stories to tell.

Note: When inquiring about a particular course, you must recognise your abilities, as many require a minimum level of competence and fitness.
