Customer reviews - what you say about Glenmore Lodge

Really useful and informative course. Mick was a brilliant instructor, really enthusiastic and gave us a number of practical exercises to help put the basics of navigation into practice and commit them to memory. By the end of the day I felt confident that I could use a compass when out walking and could navigate better using the contour lines on a map.

The instructor Mick was great and Glenmore Lodge is such a comfortable & friendly place to be based.
Really enjoyed the course and the way it was run.
