Det skal I lave
Need to build your confidence in the basics of using map and compass for route-finding here in the beautiful Snowdonia landscape? This is an easy and fun day for learning some basic map skills and putting them immediately into practice on a short and fairly easy low-level ramble around Beddgelert. No prior map-reading knowledge is required. The ramble is done at a slow steady pace with plenty of stops to check maps, positions, etc. This is a great introduction, refresher or confidence builder for recreational walkers. It is fun and light-hearted, and makes great use of the beautiful but lesser-known terrain around Beddgelert. It does not lead to a formal qualification, though it is based soundly on recognized principles and good practice. It can be done as a family or small group experience, and is dog-friendly.
I’m a retired but active ex-academic with an interest in outdoor adventure, science, environment, and industrial archaeology. I spend a huge amount of my time exploring the lesser-trodden hills, mountains and coastline of North Wales, usually in the company of my dog. I live at the foot of the Moelwyn Mountains, close to the Dyrwyd and Glanlyn Estuaries on the beautiful Cambrian Coast. I lead a social dog walking group, encouraging dog owners to explore and the landscape of Snowdonia safely and confidently with their dogs. I am a warden with a local mountaineering club, and enjoy skill-sharing with folks of all ages, interests and capabilities.

Her skal du være
We will meet first in one of the excellent Beddgelert cafes, no doubt over tea and biscuits. This will help confirm everyone's skills and needs and introduce some basic map-reading, route planning, and way-finding skills. We will then set off on an easy three-hour stroll, working to build on these skills with practice on some of the less familiar paths and tracks in the area. Lots of time to rest, reflect and reconnoiter!
