Welcome to Wilderness Folk School

Bushcraft Courses
Help You To
Reconnect with Nature

At the heart of the Wilderness Folk Schools' ethos is a belief that connection to nature is fostered though participation within it.

Bushcraft is the study of how to live in nature and with nature, while using your knowledge of it to meet your needs and be comfortable.


Our bushcraft courses in Scotland teach you the wilderness skills you need to have your own experiences in the outdoors in safety, comfort and harmony.

How to Forage for Wild Foods &
Live Comfortably in the Forest  

Understanding Nature and engaging with the outdoors is fundamental for your mental and physical health.  We firmly believe that the more knowledge you have, the better placed you are to have meaningful outdoor experiences.


Not only is learning about wildlife good for you, it also fosters self reliance, confidence and competent outdoors-people.

A Special Place To Learn Traditional Crafts;

Many traditional skills are inherently sustainable.  By using local materials, you are not only helping the environment, you are also connecting yourself to place and engaging with the nature around you.
