Event description

Description

The course will be held over three evenings: 19th 26th April & 3rd May, You must be able to attend all three.

I absolutely love maps. I love poring over them, looking at places I have not been yet and planning my next adventure.
I have navigated across Europe, from Leicester to Georgia, using a map and never getting lost. I have run mountain marathons when the mist has been down and visibility has been just 5m, running on a bearing the whole way, and hit every check point. I have also been on the hills on a clear day when I have never once needed to get my compass out, but seen the way using just the map. I have used maps to navigate my way over mountain ranges all over the world, without having to rely on someone else. The freedom this has given me has been amazing. This could also be you!
There was a time when I couldn’t read a map, when I couldn’t relate what the map was showing me, to what the ground in front of me looked like. I would try and make a map fit where I wanted to be, instead of the other way around.
This course is for those of you who don’t know how to read a map. We will start at the beginning, with the very basics. Over the weeks you will progress to being able to look at the lines on a map and fit them to the ground in front of you. It is all about the map, learning how to read what it is telling you and giving you confidence to use one on your own.
The sessions will be practical, involve walking (sometimes over rough terrain), some silly games and lots and lots of looking at maps of all different types. All with the aim of you learning how to read one.
• We will meet in Laggan Car Park at 7pm for each session.
• 6 places available.
• Tickets £40 for the three sessions.
• Once you have booked your place, I will email further details.
