Great balance of fun, hard work and quality coaching
Sep 2020
Recently completed the 3 day survival course with Graham, Derek and Abigail.
All three instructors provided excellent level of instruction delivered in a down to earth and understandable way. The pace was a good balance of instruction, then leaving you on your own or in your group to get on with the task at hand using your newly acquired skills.
From building an improvised shelter, to informing rescue of your location, acquiring and preparing food and water, to navigating to safety. All based on using prepared kit, and what’s around you to your advantage.
My friend and I had great fun and made some great friends on this course. I would recommend this to anyone who may rely on survival skills at some point or just wants a taste of the spectacular Scottish outdoors.

3 day multi environment Survival course.
Sep 2020 • Solo
I did the 3 day multi environment survival course at weekend and had an amazing time. The course exceeded exceeded my expectations, I learnt loads and enjoyed every minute. I feel more confident now that I have the knowledge, skills, tools in my rucksack and what resources are around me when I am out going up and down Munros and generally out in the wild. A massive thank you to Derek, Abi and Graham who ran the course. Their knowledge, experience and the great mix of theory and practical examples was perfect. Would highly recommend this course to anyone who spends time outdoors. On top of all this I really enjoyed the 3 days and putting in to practice what I had learnt. I hope I don't need to use some of what I have learnt but if the need arises I know it might save my life or those I am with. Lots of what I learnt I have already used to amend my kit list or cant wait to put into practice on my next trip.

Brilliant Survival Course
May 2019 • Business
I recently attended a 2 day survival course run by Backcountry Survival. The course was brilliant from beginning to end and the instructors knowledge was impressive. It was well structured and you were given time through the course to practice and consolidate the skills you had been taught. I would highly recommend one of Backcountry Survival courses to anyone wishing to learn survival / bushcraft skill in an excellent remote setting.

3 Day Survival Course - Brilliant!!!
May 2019 • Solo
I can't recommend the BCS team and Neil highly enough. I attended the three day survival course and from start to finish it was brilliant. We learnt an incredible amount and crammed so much into the three days! The team of instructors were fantastic and really guided everyone through, catering for all abilities! Without a doubt I'll be back again!

Thank you Neal for an Adventure that you made possible even in the bad weather and for keeping us safe in harsh environment.

It was good a trip, with good expierance.
