Who We Are & What We Do

The name Backcountry Survival Ltd (BCS Ltd) sums up what we do perfectly – we love to get into the more remote places and teach skills for living in an area for a prolonged length of time, making use of the materials and natural resources around us. Our wilderness survival courses in Scotland aim to offer everyone a challenging but rewarding experience – whatever skill-level or experience.

Our Mission

Our aim is to get our clients travelling and navigating through a wide range of terrain in a safe and environmentally sensitive way. We are immensely proud of the Cairngorm National Park and Scotland as a whole, which is how Backcountry came to be. Started up in 2009 by founder Neil Foote and recently taken over in 2020 and now trading as Backcountry Survival Ltd we will continue to build on the reputation of delivering solid, interesting, exciting but most importantly, relevant survival courses that can be implemented in a wide range of scenarios.

We Are Different

Backcountry Survival Ltd is different from other Survival companies, our clients have the opportunity to learn survival skills relevant to any environment and in an environmentally sensitive way. Our bushcraft and survival courses also complement a variety of outdoor activities such as hill walking, trekking, sea kayak trips, cross country skiing and so on, as they provide key survival and navigational techniques that would benefit anyone spending time in a diverse wilderness environment.
