About this course

Come join us on our 43ft Yacht as we sail up the West coast of Scotland learning coastal survival and seamanship skills on our Primal Castaway course. The West coast of Scotland has some of the best sailing in the world with many isolated coves and uninhabited inlets for you to explore. Not to mention secluded beaches where you can spend the night under the stars with a roaring fire to keep you warm.

Sailing up the Kyles of Bute we will be spotting marine mammals with our specialised maritime equipment, learning seamanship skills and having the chance to sail the yacht. Visiting uninhabited islands you will learn coastal survival skills, foraging wild edibles and principles of survival. Sleep under the stars or spend a night in your own castle!

Then on our return enjoy the thrill of speeding back to port in our own high power speedboat!

The course starts at 9am on Day 1, and finishes around 4pm on Day 3, although this time may vary due to tide times.
