Primal Bushcraft & Survival

Want to get back to nature? Primal Bushcraft and Survival, based right here at Dalkeith Country Park, are passionate about the outdoors and love sharing their knowledge of bushcraft and survival skills with you. The term bushcraft means ‘wilderness skills’ and that’s exactly what you’ll take away from a taster session or course here at the park.

Back to nature

The team at Primal believe that it’s a good idea to have a few survival skills up your sleeve so you don’t get caught out when you need them most. In today’s world, we depend on technology more and more, but at the expense of our primal instinct and hunter gatherer skills. Their courses give you a chance to re-engage with nature and apply some practical survival skills; the perfect outdoor activity to do with the family or friends if you’re looking for things to do near Edinburgh, in Midlothian’s beautiful countryside.


Every month, Primal runs two day courses and one weekend course. You can book online through their website or during a taster session at the park.
