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.

The itinerary may change depending on the weather, but all subjects will be covered.

Extreme Course 2013

This course is more of a survival course than a bushcraft course and is exactly what the course description indicates - except it isn't. It's so much more! The instructors are the best instructors I've had the pleasure to be taught by, the scenery is amazing and the whole course is just brilliant. A perfect week. Thank you Jonny, Dan and Alain. 5 stars aren't enough.
