Join our 2023 Coastal Survival Expedition on one of the most beautiful islands in the world. No experience necessary. This weekend is not a test of endurance, it’s an opportunity for everyone to learn, and practice essential coastal survival techniques. Rum is renowned for its sheer beauty and diverse collection of wildlife. From its resident Deer population to soaring eagles and the majestic Whales and sharks who roam the seas around this little Gem of an island. The Island is steeped in history and on our expedition, we will see some of the oldest human settlements in Scotland.


Our experienced team will help you settle in to your new surroundings and will be on hand throughout the weekend to guide you through. Here is a list of the workshops we will cover;

  • Shelter making
