Nature Courses, Survival Skills & Bushcraft in Scotland

Forest Icon

Our members provide a range of activities related to bushcraft, survival skills and nature courses.

You could learn the basic elements of survival responsibly, like finding water, building shelter and lighting a fire. There are also more specialised skills like navigation, food foraging and animal tracking. Some of our providers teach nature crafting skills like wood carving, chord and felt making, weaving and basketry.

Find the perfect adventure for you, whether you’re solo or in a group. Come together as a family and spend the day learning coastal foraging, cooking up your findings in the afternoon over an open fire. Escape the day to day and lose yourself in the process of crafting something from scratch or try a navigation course, giving yourself that extra bit of confidence and freedom when next out in the mountains.

Learn more than just traditional outdoor and bushcraft skills, take time for yourself in nature.

All Wild Scotland members operate in line with our Best Practice Guidelines in regards to sustainability, accessibility, community and safety.
