Our Highlander Survival course is the first of its kind in the world.
Our aim is to provide an immersive outdoor, historical and cultural experience. In order to not only learn practical survival skills, but also to see, move through and use the land the way our Highland ancestors did 300-400 years ago. Through this experience we aim to rekindle the knowledge of our ancestors and salvage lost skills that we can bring back to the present day for a more resilient future.
This course is classed as “Intermediate” meaning some prior experience in camping and being comfortable in outdoors is desirable. However, no prior experience in bushcraft-survival skills is needed before attending the course.
There will be 2 overnight camps on this course. The course starts on 9.30am on day 1, and ends around 1pm on day 3. On receipt of booking, location and course details will be sent out. Please see kit list below for what you need to bring.
