Ian Nairn

Ian Nairn - Bushcraft Instructor

BUSHCRAFT INSTRUCTOR
Full Time

Ian has had a love of the woods since his early childhood. Spending many summers in the Lake District or Scotland, camping with his parents, Ian's love of the outdoors sprouted and grew continuously. His father bought him his first knife at the age of 5 and taught him the importance of this vital tool. Ian was fortunate to have an upbringing that allowed him to follow this passion and he spent many hours lost in woodlands, building shelters, watching birds and animals. Camping trips with his father became more basic with a back to nature, foraging and fishing for food theme; Ian was "doing" bushcraft before it was called bushcraft.
