Survive and thrive with Bushcraft in the Cairngorms

Bushcraft in the Cairngorms

Ever wondered how you would fare surviving in the wilderness? Would you know how to source food, build shelter, or create a fire with what you have to hand?

Bushcraft is all about learning skills that have existed for thousands of years and using them in a natural environment. It may be unlikely you’ll be in a situation that needs survival skills, but they are still great skills to have and loads of fun to learn.

Here at Cairngorms Activities, we give you the opportunity to learn the ancient skill of bushcraft in stunning outdoor surroundings, a wonderful activity suitable for ages 8+ years.

We’ve got half-day and full-day options where you’ll learn firelighting, shelter building, foraging, and more. Our team is ready to turn you into the next survival expert, or simply give you a fantastic day in the great outdoors.
