The map shows the extent of the route from Buckie to Aviemore, with spurs to Dufftown and Tomintoul, a total walking distance of some 84 miles (135km).

Navigation using map & compass & GPS navigation courses

Our one and two day basic navigation courses teach the basic use of the map and compass on the hill. We cover navigation techniques using handrails, collecting points and tick-off features, aiming off, timing and pacing and relocation skills. Also, time will be spent considering contour lines and how they relate to the land features we see around us.

We also run GPS navigation courses for hillwalkers, skiers and climbers looking at the basic use of GPS. We cover how the GPS system works, correct GPS set up for the UK and abroad, how to create and use marks, waypoints and routes as well as using the "tracback" and "goto" features on the hill. In the classroom, we can organise an introduction to using mapping software to make GPS route planning easier.
