Our Lake District Map Reading and Navigation Courses are really popular with outdoor people who want to learn or improve their navigation and hill skills.

Here are some customer testimonials and course reviews from our 2013 navigation for beginners courses:

‘Just like to say how much Lesley and I enjoyed and benefited from your navigation course. I thought the content and pace was ‘just right’ and obviously the classroom, Eskdale countryside, stunning’.

‘The top of Scarfell Pike was misty, cold and damp with poor visibility. We were able to use the compass to pick up the correct route down and were very pleased with ourselves and with our new found skills. It is gratifying experience when things you have learnt make sense and everything kicks into place.

All’s well that ends well and we were soon sitting under the stars, drinking wine outside our pod. We have learned such a lot both from your expert tuition and from our mistakes and we have had a fun-tastic time in the lakes. Thank you so much’.

‘Pete – I have to say you must have the patience of a saint running this course with such an interesting bunch of folks. I really enjoyed the course and learnt a great deal which I am looking forward to putting into practice.
Let me know when you are running a NNAS silver course and I may join you’,
Cheers, Dave B. (Ravenglass Course)


Both Linda and I enjoyed our two days of navigation and basking in the sun with you, and thank you for making it so enjoyable.
Best wishes, Alison (& Linda). (Beginners Navigation course)

More Next Year, Please!


We had excellent feedback from the group who did the navigation skills course with you at Ravenglass and all seemed to enjoy themselves at Eskdale. If you are up for it we would like to try and arrange more courses for next year.
Thank you very much, Carol and Mike (Ravenglass Camping & Caravan site).
