BUSHCRAFT & WILDERNESS SKILLS
Enjoy a unique experience in the wild and stunning environment of the Scottish Highlands. Backcountry Survival – 57.3293° N 3.6088° W – the furthest North Bushcraft and Survival school in Britain provides tailored courses and packages in wilderness survival techniques and the art of bushcraft.
Bushcraft is about surviving and thriving in the natural environment, and the acquisition of key skills and knowledge to do so. We teach skills well known to our ancient predecessors, many of which are still practiced today, however more are being lost.
Backcountry Survival is different from other bushcraft companies, as clients have the opportunity to learn skills relevant to a variety of environments – woodland, moorland, mountain, river, loch and sea. Our courses also complement a variety of outdoor activities, as they provide key survival and navigational techniques that would benefit anyone spending time in a diverse wilderness environment.
Regardless of whether you are an individual, group or family, courses are available to all.
