Hill & Moorland Leader

Mountain Leader

Bryn has been delivering the Hill and Moorland Leader qualification since it was formally known as the Walking Group Leader. This fantastic qualification gives great opportunity to explore remote hill areas around the country.

The Hill and Moorland Leader qualification is ideal for walkers who want to learn the skills required for effective group leadership in the hill and moorland areas of the UK and Ireland. It is used extensively by those involved with delivering the Duke of Edinburgh's Award as well as many walk leaders and outdoor instructors.


Hill & Moorland Leader TRAINING COURSE

The training course is a fantastic 3-days, which is mostly spent out in the hills learning in the elements alongside likeminded people. We get away from the paths and into remote country and also spend one evening out in darkness learning to navigate.
