HIGHLANDER SURVIVAL SKILLS
Our Highland ancestors were masters of survival and had an in-depth knowledge of their land and the natural world around them. A large part of my work is trying to rekindle the knowledge they had and keep it alive for future generations to enjoy.
In these courses I can cover a wide range of topics:
- The multifunctional uses of the Great Kilt (plaid).
- Equipment carried.
- Traditional Fire lighting
- Traditional campfire cooking.
- Gaelic edible and medicinal plants.
-Gaelic stories, myths and legends.
- Reading the Gaelic landscape.
- Weapons and martial basics (Dirk dagger, staff and archery).
You can either book a place on one of my Highlander Survival course with Primal Bushcraft and Survival.
Or contact me for a private lesson:
Each experience is custom built for you!

Many thanks for a great weekend on the Highlander Survival Skills Course. Having a 17th Century theme and location added a great atmosphere to the Bushcraft course. Despite the Scottish weather apparently rearranging some of the planned itinerary (not that we were aware of it at the time). We covered a wide range of survival skills. Including – Finding a suitable spot for a night’s bivouac, knife safety, making fire by friction, game preparation for the evening meal, a local wild plant identification and hill walk with an introduction to Gaelic names and meanings then finally carving a wooden dirk.
I Would definitely recommend this course to anyone looking for a Bushcraft course with a highland theme.
