Hills of Hame is a registered provider of the Bronze and Silver levels of the National Navigation Award Scheme (NNAS).
The NNAS scheme is designed to develop personal competence and skill in navigation for a range of outdoor pursuits. Visit the NNAS site for more information. NNAS is accredited by the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework at Level 4 and attracts 2 credit points.
Bronze and Silver Award courses and assessment may be booked for private groups, as small as two people up to a maximum of eight, but please book at least a week in advance. Enquire here.
Al delivers the courses personally. Close to the Hills of Hame base, there is a variety of wooded and hilly terrain suitable to develop and assess the skills for Bronze level. For Silver courses, the northern Pentlands around Hillend and Bonaly offer the right sort of terrain to build hill navigation skills. We are fortunate enough to have several fixed orienteering courses close to base, thanks to the work of ESOC and Interlopers.
