Lowland Leader Training & Assessment

The Lowland Leader Award has been designed for people who wish to lead groups on day walks in lowland countryside and woodland in summer conditions. The majority of the UK and Ireland is made up of this type of terrain so you will never be short of places to go walking.

The leadership opportunities for Lowland Leaders are varied and far reaching, from the South West Coast Path to the Great Glen Way and the tracks and trails on the island of Ireland. Walking in lowland areas can be no less spectacular than walking high up in the mountains.

The Lowland Leader Award is for leading groups on lowland tracks that are clearly marked on both the land and the map.
