GPS training course places available

There are still some places available on the GPS navigation courses to be run by the Mountaineering Council of Scotland (MCofS) in October. The dates with availability are 10, 16 and 17 October.

The focus of the course is to familiarise participants with the various functions of the GPS unit so they feel confident to navigate safely on the hill.

The one day 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 are based at Glenmore Lodge, Aviemore and will be run by Heather Morning, MCofS Mountain Safety Advisor.

The course costs £25 per person and pre-booking is essential – details here.
