BSO Dark Arts Of The Compass


This is an offsite activity where you will have to arrange your own transport

You might be a hillwalker looking to improve your navigation skills beyond the basic level, so that you’re confident to cross open country where paths are feint and be able to navigate in low visibility from a known point.

Or you might be a competent and experienced map reader who doesn’t get to practice your technical skills very often and would like to refresh them in a relaxed and supportive environment.

Sorry, no places left.

What to Expect:

We will spend approximately 30 minutes on the BSO site, looking at fundamentals of navigation on a large teaching map before splitting the group in to two teams based on experience, knowledge and ability.
Then we’ll drive up to Longstone Moor (approx 10 minutes) where we’ll spend two hours on practical skills out on the moor using map, compass, looking at ground features and navigating between them using bearings, pacing and timing.
