About this course

Our Primal Highlander Survival course is the first of its kind in the UK. On this course we will look into the history of our Highland ancestors and learn the practical skills they used to survive in the harsh Scottish environment. From clothing to foraging, Gaelic plant name and uses, food preparation, weapons, archery and fighting styles and much more.

There will be 2 overnight camps on this course. On receipt of booking, location and course details will be sent out.
