NEW Island Survival Weekend - West Coast of Scotland



Spend the weekend stranded on a small wooded island on the West Coast of Scotland! You will not only spend the weekend in one of the most beautiful parts of Scotland, but will learn about elements of survival specific to islands. For example, the limited resources and isolation from the mainland.

On the course the island is surrounded by sea water, so potentially there is plentiful marine food, but limited fresh water.

By the end of the weekend you will have learned about the following:

  • marine foraging - shellfish, seaweeds and fishing
  • water sourcing and preparation including desalination
  • fire lighting with sparks and friction
  • signalling for help - reflection, whistles, ground to air, signal fires
  • tidal cycles and flows
  • shelter using natural features and materials
  • sustainability of resources
  • utilising washed up materials for survival
  • raft building - making to leave the island (sea and weather conditions allowing)
