The Lowland Leader Award (LLA)has been designed for people who wish to lead groups on day walks in lowland countryside and woodland in summer conditions. The majority of the UK and Ireland is made up of this type of terrain, so you'll never be short of places to go walking. 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. And with campaigns such as Britain on Foot and Walking for Health proving really popular, there’s never been a better time to be a walking leader.
CCAT Course fee: £40
Eligibility: Staff Cadets and CFAVs
Further information: The Mountain Training Website provides guidance on how to become a Lowland Leader. The LLA Candidate Handbook which is available as a free download gives details on how to register for the award, the training syllabus, qualification remit, log book requirements and training and assessment course prerequisites.
