Outdoor and Environmental Education

Cairngorm Summer Hill-Walking

Outdoor and environmental educators intending to take others into the hills and mountains of the UK, and beyond, will recognise the value of increasing their competence in the technical and group management skills required for safe learning and enjoyment in this environment.


The Summer Hill-Walking course incorporates elements of  innovative learning and teaching, navigation, lowland walking, and hill-walking. The principal aim is for students to increase their learning and teaching, and technical competence in  travelling through, and living in land-based landscapes. The course features a short expedition.
