Lowland Leader Training
The leadership opportunities for Lowland Leaders are varied and far reaching, from the South West Coast Path to the Great Glen Way; walking in lowland areas can be no less spectacular than walking high up in the mountains. We feel that North Wales is an ideal location for Lowland Leader courses, with its stunning coastal paths and array of inland tracks with stunning mountainous scenery.
