Guided Walking and Hiking Breaks is it for you?
- Unsure of the best places to walk, the safest routes or want a quiet walk away from the crowds?
- Limited time to plan a route on a short break, or as part of a longer holiday or tour?
- Uncertain of your route-finding skills or want to leave yourself free to enjoy the scenery?
- Want to learn more about the area you are walking in and have good company to share your love of the hills?
- Want to enhance your confidence and skills in the hills?  

Hillcraft Guided Walking who are we?
Hillcraft is led by Paul Shorrock who has 40 years experience of mountain walking. His passion for the beautiful high places of the UK is only matched by his love of sharing his knowledge and skills in a relaxed and friendly way that enables you to enjoy breathtaking scenery and walk more safely and confidently. Our emphasis is on sharing our enthusiasm, working with you to plan your day and ensuring your comfort and enjoyment throughout the walk.

Customised Guided Walks - what do we offer?  
We design and deliver personalised guided hill walks for you; just tell us the date, time and area you want to walk and the interests and experience of your group. Using our skills and local knowledge we work with you to devise a hill day that will meet your needs whether you are going solo, or as a couple, family, group of friends or work colleagues, from novice walkers to the mountain fit.  To find out more, go to the Guided Hill Walks page.

Hill Skills and Navigation Training go a step further?
Do you want to use your walking holiday to improve your confidence in hill skills and navigation? We offer courses and coaching, from basic hill safety, navigation using map and compass, up to nationally recognised navigation awards and pre-assessment and coaching for outdoor qualifications. Day courses and residential weekends are on offer alongside bespoke coaching.  To find out more, go to the Navigation and Skills Training page.
