The Lake District, and in particular the Borrowdale area of the Central Fells, is an outstanding location for Mountain Leader courses. In addition to being widely recognised as one of the most beautiful mountain landscapes in Britain, the area is filled with venues that perfectly meet the needs of Mountain Leader syllabus.

The varied geology of the area provides us with an extraordinary range of hill and mountain terrain to work with, from featureless fells, broad ridges and domed summits to rugged crag lined ridges and angular mountain peaks. These places provide endless opportunity to explore and develop the skills required to operate as a Mountain Leader.

The Central Fells landscape tells a vivid story of glaciation, environmental change and centuries of human settlement, agriculture and industry. Combined with a rich heritage of artistic, literary and scientific associations, the Borrowdale valley and Central Fells provide a fantastic resource for understanding and communicating the special qualities of the mountain landscape.

All our ML courses are based in the heart of the Borrowdale valley which allows easy and immediate access to this perfect environment. Venues ideal for steep ground and rope work can be easily reached within a 20 minute walk and heading away from our accommodation north, east, south or west takes us into contrasting mountain terrain and topography ideal for honing navigational skills and studying every aspect of the uplands and mountainous environments of the UK.

The Lake District national park really does have it all, a true 'Goldilocks' location for ML training and assessment courses...
