Hillwalking

Do you want to get away into the hills? Do you want to increase your confidence in leading scouts in the mountains? Do you want to get a hill walking permit to take your Explorers or Scouts on more exciting trips?

Whether you are new to the hills, or a veteran looking for permit renewal or an excuse to get out into the hills, our programme offers something for you.

The County Adult Hill Walking Training Lead and Hill Walking assessor is Phillip Gamston. Andrew Furnell is also a County Hill Walking assessor and Graham Drabble is a County advisor.

The team runs four training weekends per year in the hills and mountains around the UK. Leaders are encouraged to come along on the training weekends to help develop their skills and also simply to get out there. There is normally one main assessment weekend each year with two in Kandersteg Expedition years.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
