About this course

There’s nothing better than getting the whole family out into the great outdoors for a weekend of adventure. What better way than to learn new skills together, bonding away from iPad’s and computers and re-connecting with each other in a relaxed and natural environment.

Come and learn the skills of our Primal ancestors at Duncarron Medieval Fort in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

During your family weekend, we have activities for all the family including archery, commando training skills for the kids, tracking walks and much much more.

The course starts at 10:00 on Saturday and we aim to have you away by mid-afternoon the following day. You will have the opportunity to make your own improvised shelter but tents are welcome.
