Walk Out through the Land the Time Forgot - Outrageously stunnig
Course Ends 2-3pm
The course starts with a breathtaking walk along a magnificent ridge followed by a trek down to the woodland over looking a beautiful loch. The course is designed to teach and test you on true wilderness survival, many fire lighting techniques, search and rescue patterns, helicopter landing sites, map reading, spoon carving, charcloth making, casualty evacuation, game preparation and water purification.
The course finishes with the trek out. The route takes you through a place that we call 'the land that time forgot'. When you walk through the gorge you'll see what we mean. This is the highlands at its best. The screech and calls of the eagles overhead, the clambering over huge rocks and the decent down to the streams and waterfalls below make you want to stay forever.
