Finding Your Way in the Hills and Forest through Hiking in Ross Shire

Alan Richards

Select Option


I love walking. Exploring the local hills and forest. I have experience in orienteering. I wish to share this though there will be no certificates - just a friendly chat and learning as we go. A small group enjoying the countryside and learning a skill. There will be a little history and geography too - from Jacobite rebellions to 1st and 2nd world war and ancestry.

About This Deal


Orienteering requires wayfinding skills using a map and compass to navigate from point to point in diverse and usually unfamiliar terrain. We will be walking in the hills and forests, coast and countryside of Ross Shire - particularly around Alness. I will tutor the orienteering and wayfinding skills. Maps and compass provided for the day. Walkers must come with suitable clothes and footwear. Guests will leave more confident in orienteering and navigating - in finding their way. How to find direction without a compass. Where suitable the routes, meeting point and time required will be chosen by attendees. There will be time to chat and find out the history of Ross and Cromarty - from prehistory, through Jacobite rebellions, the first and second world wars.
