Hillwalking Permits


To take young people into the hills you will need to have an appropriate hillwalking permit in accordance with the Scouts adventurous activity permit scheme.

For hillwalking there are four different levels of permit:
  * Terrain 1 Summer conditions  * Terrain 1 Winter conditions  * Terrain 2 Summer conditions  * Terrain 2 Winter conditions.

Further information on Hillwalking adventurous activity permits for terrain 1 and 2 can be found here.

Currently, the South East Scotland hillwalking assessor team can only provide assessments for Terrain 1 and 2 in Summer conditions as part of our regular scheduled weekends. If you require a Winter T1 or T2 permit please email to make specific arrangements for an assessment. 

Dates for next “Assessment” / “Assessment Training” weekends

The South East Scotland Scouts team of assessors run two weekends each year one in April and one around the end of September. The weekend allows us to cover the full syllabus including the lightweight camping aspects.
