In Heroes of Might and Magic III your heroes gain skills as they level up. When you level up, you will be presented with two options for skills, one of which you can opt to learn. There are three tiers of each skill - Basic, Advanced and Expert.

Another way to gain skills is to get them from random dwellings on the map such as a Seer's Hut.

Because I don't look at what I'm doing and click anything that says unvisited, I always end up ruining my hero by learning a skill like "Scouting" or "Eagle Eye" from a random dwelling.

Is there a way I can discard these skills?

Erf. I know there's a neutral building to reset hero skills, but I think that might have been Heroes V... –  Raven Dreamer Jan 19 '12 at 6:33
Yes, this building is in Heroes V –  Mentoliptus Jan 19 '12 at 7:26
What's so bad about Scouting? It can save you a lot of movement points. –  Kyralessa Jan 20 '12 at 1:43
@Kyralessa It's no Expert Air Magic, though. –  Marty Jan 20 '12 at 1:44
@Kyralessa, The problem is that one hero can only have up to 8 skills. –  Pacerier Jun 7 at 8:39

No, there's no way of unlearning skills in Heroes III. At least not in the core version of the game, WoG has introduced the Arcane Towers that allow a hero to redistribute his or her primary skill points but not secondary skill points. (Wake of Gods)

A good tactic that I use is to visit Witch Huts and similar dwellings with my secondary hero to avoid messing up my primary heros's skills.

No there isn't.

A standard tactic is to save your game before approaching a Witch Hut and reload if you don't want that particular skill. My autosave has saved me a few times.

You can not save/load in multiplayer :( –  Mentoliptus Jan 21 '12 at 12:21
@Mentoliptus, Good point, but do people still play multiplayer Heroes3? –  Pacerier Jun 7 at 8:40
We play it mostly in hot seat mode :) –  Mentoliptus Jun 7 at 15:47
