The Mountain Leader award provides a Nationally recognised leadership award for those who wish to lead groups into the mountains of the UK in summer conditions or train and supervise more remote Duke of Edinburgh Award Gold expeditions. To attend a summer ML training you should be a committed hill walker with 12 months or twenty Quality Mountain Days (QMD's) experience.

For ML assessment you need a minimum of 40 QMD's in three areas of the UK , 8 nights camping, at least 4 of which should be high mountain wild camping and a current 16 hr 1st Aid Certificate. Check the link for detailed prospectus.
Our courses are Pitlochry based which provides a perfect choice of venues and helps us keep our mileage down during the course.
You can choose accommodation to suit your budget.
Pitlochry has a wide range of accommodation - we recommend the Pitlochry SYHA or the Backpackers Hostel which have well equipped and comfortable accommodation within walking distance of coach and rail routes plus shops and the very popular Moulin Inn.
