We had the best time thanks to Matt and the team. So much fun, great caber tossing, axe throwing, archery and off course Highland dancing! Thoroughly recommend them - we were on a 50th birthday party and it was perfect! More...

We just did the family survival weekend at Dalkeith Country Park. My son loved making the shelter, whittling wood - first time he has used a knife, making a fire, roasting marshmallows and foraging for berries. Liam and Stewart were brilliant! This was a special treat for him before he started school and he thoroughly enjoyed it. More...

Brilliant thank you to all the staff who made her day ☀️ More...

I recently organised a large Corporate Event with Primal Adventures for our Global Senior Leadership team.The service from to start to finish was of high quality, with the Primal Adventures Team being very receptive to a tailored event – nothing was too much trouble and they were always very quick at responding during the planning phase. The event itself was run very smoothly and provided exactly what was required. The environment allowed the team to spend quality time together building relationships whilst being tested in an unconventional environment. The evenings were very enjoyable and allowed even more team activities but this time in a less structured way. The social element was also well planned – the whiskey tasting experience being the highlight of the 4 days!We will be back! More...

I recently attended a bushcraft and survival skills day at Dalkeith Country Park with my 7 year old son. We both had a brilliant day, we learned so much in a single day. My son gave the experience 10/10 and keeps asking to do it all over again. He wants to stay the night next time and sleep under the shelter we built on the day. Liam and Paul were great leaders and are a real credit to the team at Primal Bushcraft and Survival. Thank you for a brilliant experience and I’m sure we will see you again in the future. More...

Despite a lack of snow for the ski touring introduction, I was able to take some useful lessons away to be better prepared for next winter. The tour guide knew the cairngorms like the back of his hand and was very experienced. The Bushcraft staff were also very welcoming. More...

Fantastic day for me and my boy. Couldn't rate this highly enough. Age ranges on the day from 5yrs to - let's just say a lot older - but everything pitched at just the right level for everyone. Instructors were extremely knowledgable, skill full, patient and easy going although very professional throughout. I'll definitely be looking at the other courses available. Highly recommend.....

I took my son and his friend here as part of his birthday present. We all had a great day learning new skills (Practising feathering wood at home! ) and gaining a respect for the outdoors and environment around us. The course content was delivered in a fun and informative manner with loads of time to try out our new skills. My son absolutely loved it and is saving his money for the survival weekend, so I guess that means I'll be going too� Matt, Paul and Andy were friendly and extremely knowledgable. Thanks for a great day. More...

Great day with friendly helpful instructor Paul and everyone on the course who were super company. Very informative and I would encourage anyone - never too young, or old, to learn useful skills. Looking forward to a return visit in the future. More...

Had a great weekend with the guys. As a relative novice to all things outdoors, it was great to learn new skills along with the theory behind it. All the guys are really passionate about what they do and go the extra mile to make sure its as enjoyable as possible. The food throughout was excellent and had a great time building my shelter and relaxing with my own little fire after a busy day learning. Many thanks to Matt, Paul & John for providing such an excellent time. More...
