I had a great day on the Helvellyn hike, guided by Sam. If you want to uncover some of the mysteries of the Lake District, such as which mountain is which, which path goes where, mountain sheep, flora, maybe push yourself the extra mile or do something that you would not normally attempt, Sam is your man. He also tutored me in methods to tackle small climbs and scrambles, including a great technique for short people which Sam calls ‘au cheval’. Managed to get through the day without ripping my trousers and was supremely happy. Would I hire him again? ...Yes I am!

Had a great day up at Elterwater on an intro to navigation course run by Sam Marsland. A great course, really worth doing, going through all the basics of navigation, map reading, planning routes, 4Ds of navigation, using a compass etc. As well as some theory we went from Elterwater up Dow Bank, Silver How and down Megs Gill to Chapel Stile. I definitely think that anyone like me, who plans to walk the fells, but doesn’t really have these skills should do this course. It was fun, informative and a great way to spend a full day with good company. I was on the course with another lady, and I’m sure it would be just as good for couples, families etc. I now feel much happier navigating the Lakeland fells alone. Thanks Sam 😀

Sam chooses to work with a small group which gave us excellent attention and patient guidance when attempting the skills he demonstrated. i.e. the aspects of the core areas: Distance Duration Description Direction and I loved them introduced with the memorable acronym 4Ds!

Just back from a trip to the Lakes which included one day on LDM Navigation Course with a friend. The course included several well thought-out exercises and interesting discussions on how to accurately navigate on the fells - without a GPS. Not being complete novices, the course was tailored to our needs and we both learnt some advanced skills that should now get us home safe in the fog. And, as a bonus , we also bagged 3 Wainwrights! Sam is not only a great guide and a knowledgeable teacher but very pleasant company too.

What an adventure! Sam was excellent. He guided us safely up Grey Crag to the top of High Stile, via Harrow Buttress, Chockstone Ridge, Oxford & Cambridge Direct Route. Sam was interesting and engaging throughout the day and we came away having learnt lots too! 100% Reccomend.
