Find your way on the hills, learn how to navigate with map and compass
We believe that everyone who walks in the hills should be able to travel there and come home safely. Find out how to read a map and use a compass and lots more. Join us for one or both of our Mountain Skills courses (MS1 and MS2).
These courses are run to Bord Oillúint Sleibhte (Mountaineering Ireland) requirements by qualified training providers. On MS1 Learn how to read a map and relate what you see there to what you see on the ground, learn how to estimate walk duration and difficulty, find out what clothing and other gear you should bring with you on the hills. On MS2 learn how to use a compass, plan a route, navigate at night and in poor visibility, handle hazards and incidents.
MS1 and MS2 each comprise of 2 days instruction. We think that the skills learned should be put into practice right away so that you will get most benefit so we offer 2 days accompanied walking right after each of our courses, to give you a chance to walk with your instructors, practice what you have learned and enjoy the wonderful scenery on the Dingle peninsula.
