Event description

Description

Morning: ‘micro’ with map & landscape interpretation

Afternoon: natural navigation

How to not get lost and interpreting the map and landscape. Real practical sessions teaching how to move safely across the land in all conditions. The day is split into two halves starting with maps and compass, timing and pacing to know your position in the landscape without gps. The afternoon session will demonstrate the relationship of land with Sun, wind and vegetation, showing how to read the world around you.

Part of Bushcraft Week at Kinnoull Hill

Who? Families and adults of all abilities.

What? The sessions are intended to be fun and packed full of skills, giving practical tips to increase confidence and to spark interest in enjoying the amazing countryside of Scotland.

Min Age? Under 16s to be accompanied by an adult guardian. Under 18s to have parental / guardian consent. No minimum age, as parents can bring their children.

Programme:

There are 5 topics, each covered twice during the week, so if you cannot make one, you can catch it another time. You can opt to do as many sessions as you like and can opt for a whole day or just one half. The navigation day naturally sits as one topic, but you can still attend either half.

Location: Park at Jubilee car park, based at The Shed.

Toilets and wet weather shelter available, plus means to make hot drinks.

Instructor and Leader: Malcolm Handoll of Five Senses, has been teaching outdoor skills, bushcraft and survival for 30 years, specialising in mountain, coast and natural navigation, friction fire making, foraging and emergency shelters.
