'My First Munro' is a mountain safety course for women, covering the key skills that hillwalkers need to stay safe in the mountains.
If you're a keen hillwalker but lack the skills or confidence to tackle bigger mountains alone, or you are new to hillwalking and want to find the best way to get started, then this is the course for YOU!
'My First Munro' is a one-day group course which starts with a 1h indoor session on equipment, route planning and basic navigation. After this we will head out to climb a Munro together as a group. While we are on the hill we will discuss mountain safety 'best-practice' for hill walkers as well as the role weather plays in decision-making on the hill. We will practice using our compass and take a look at emergency shelter/equipment and simple rescue procedures.
This course is delivered by ML qualified and experienced female guides, with a background in mountaineering and/or Mountain Rescue. Our goal is to empower women with the skills and confidence necessary to 'take the reigns' when hiking in groups or to explore the mountains independently.
No previous experience is necessary but a good basic level of fitness is required. An equipment list will be provided to all ladies booking with Girls on Hills. We can provide shuttle support to and from the mountain from Glencoe/local area for those visiting without their own transportation. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you require any information on accommodation or amenities.
We pride ourselves on being 'approachable and relatable', so please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any concerns.
We look forward to climbing a Munro with you!
