Navigation Courses 2013
Tuesday 22nd January 2013
We have two Navigation Courses organised for 2013. These are one day courses based in Loch Lomond National Park near Balloch. The courses explain the basics of navigation using compasses, maps and common sense. Lots of fun, no stress and not too much theory. They show you how to plan and follow routes and navigate around the countryside and hills. Price is £40.
