Are you confident getting around in nature with just a map and compass? If not, why not learn how to navigate and feel confident when out and about in nature? Wildwood Bushcraft has several navigation courses that you can try – starting from one day to multiple day courses where you and a few other people gain knowledge while experiencing beautiful sights up close! Doing their most popular course – the 2-day navigation course – you can spend the weekend walking up, exploring and camping in some of Scotland’s best mountainous regions.

When can I learn how to navigate a mountain in Scotland?

Based near Fort William, Wildwood Bushcraft offer navigation courses around some of the most picturesque mountains in Scotland! 

For this course, you’ll be part of a small group to minimise the impact on the environment. The company’s ethos is ‘making sure to use resources sustainably while providing educational experiences to others’. Its mission is to help people reconnect with nature. What better way to reconnect with nature than to set off on a two-day expedition where you don’t rely on any technology to get around? Just you, your map and compass as you immerse yourself in the sights, smells and textures all around you!
