Navigation

A series of pages giving you some useful information about the correct way to use a map and compass to navigate on the hills.

On this page are some videos I found on the web that provide good information and can highly recommend them.

The first ones are some from Ordnance Survey and as most maps used are produced by them these are very helpful.  It is quite good but not necessarily the best. You can, of course, watch these on Youtube to see a bigger version. This is a series of 8 short videos that give you the basics. Watch them one after the other or choose one using the drop down on the top left.

Here is series by an expert in navigation which gives you more detailed information.

This is a series of 14 short videos. Watch them one after the other or choose one using the drop down on the top left. If you only watch one set them watch this one.

The following 2 vids are on maps and are more detailed (if not the most professional) but they do last a little longer (10mins or so).
