The Mountaineering Council of Scotland (MCofS) has teamed up with mountain guiding company Chicks Unleashed to provide a series of women-only GPS training courses.
The day-long courses will be held at Glenmore Lodge near Aviemore on 15 and 16 May 2010 and cost £25. The course will begin with a short (approx 1 hour) introduction session indoors for participants to familiarise themselves with the GPS units. This will be followed by practical sessions in the woods around Glenmore and later out on the hill. The courses will be tutored by Heather Morning, MCofS Safety Officer, and Rosie Goolden from Chicks Unleashed. Advance booking is necessary see the McofS website for more details.
Guys have not been totally left out of the picture as places remain on four GPS navigation courses that the MCofS is running in October 2010. Click here for details of those courses.
