Would you like to complete your Bronze expedition section this year?
Training will be completed using a combination of online Zoom sessions and outdoor practical sessions to cover all topics in preparation for your qualifying expedition, including navigation, outdoor access, food, equipment and first aid. The qualifying expedition will be planned as 2 day walks with individuals returning home overnight instead of camping. All face-to-face activities will comply with current government guidance to ensure safety of both participants and staff.

We can lend you all the specialist equipment for your expeditions – from boots, to first aid kits and stoves at no extra cost. You still need to supply your own food.
We pride ourselves on helping individual participants form effective teams which support each other. We support each team to plan and achieve their own, unique, self-sufficient expedition that belongs to them. We can accommodate most additional support needs.
All venues will be accessible via public transport links with Edinburgh, or you can arrange your own drop-offs and pick-ups.
