Let’s re-engage with nature, and embrace your Primal Instinct.
Welcome to Primal Bushcraft and Survival. We are passionate about the outdoors and would love to share our knowledge of bushcraft and survival skills with you.
At Primal we believe it’s best to have a few survival skills in your back pocket so you don’t get caught out when you need them most. Like our Primal ancestors of old, living off the land and utilising skills to live in harmony with our surroundings was a natural way of life.
In today’s fast paced environment we are dependent on technology more and more and have lost touch with our Primal Instinct’s and Hunter Gatherer skills.
So let’s get outdoors, as there’s no better way to learn than the application of practical survival skills.
Open all year round we are located in 1000 acres of natural beauty just on the outskirts of Edinburgh in Dalkeith Country park. You may get the chance to spot some Otters, Badgers or Roe deer.
In today’s world we have every home comfort readily available. Warmth, food, water, shelter. When it comes to the outdoors how long could we survive with next to nothing? Campers can thrive comfortably for a few days with a large rucksack full of provisions. What if you have none of this available?
Along with physiological and psychological effects survival depends a great deal on a person’s ability to withstand stress in emergency situations. Therefore your brain is without doubt your best survival tool and your most valuable asset in a survival situation.
