Our Summer Survival Courses in Scotland run from March to the end of October and take place in the Cairngorms National Park – the largest National Park in Europe and one of Britain’s last true wildernesses – and in Northern Perthshire – the gateway to the Scottish Highlands. All summer courses are run as multi-environmental and cover a wide range of terrains from Boreal woodlands to mountainous and hillside, rivers and gorges, providing you with a more rounded experience in a range of techniques.

To make sure you choose the right course we have introduced a difficulty rating based on the physical and mental challenges on our courses. This is explained below.
“Courses with this rating are suitable for all. There is a small amount of physical hardship with a small amount of walking. Courses are suitable for 18+”
“Courses with this rating are suitable for all. There is a reasonable amount of walking and some forms of physical output. Courses are suitable for 18+”
“Courses with this rating are suitable for 18+. There is a significant amount of physical output, perhaps over a number of days. Time may be spent overnight in poor weather with minimum equipment. A certain amount of mental robustness is needed to complete.”
“Courses with this rating are suitable for 18+. There is significant physical output sometimes over multi-day, and often in Hostile habitats i.e high mountains etc. Equipment/food may be stripped back (if woodland based) or large rucksacks carried (if mountain based). Temperatures may be sub-zero or excessively high. A good level of mental robustness is needed. Special attention should be given to the kit lists available.”
“Courses with this rating are suitable for 18+. There is sustained physical output over multi-days, potentially carrying up to 40lbs, often in high/mountain terrain. Long “hill days” may be necessary, for this reason a good level of fitness is needed. Weather and temperatures are likely to be sub-zero or excessively high. Special attention should be given to kit lists available.”
