Why not take a look at what some of our customers say about us?

Just finished the Axe Use and Tree Interpretation course and had a great time. Well thought out and designed syllabus taking us through tree structure and identification leading on to axe use and safe felling techniques. Expert mentoring and a relaxed learning environment. Very much a good start to the journey.

Axe Use and Tree Interpretation Weekend - November 2019

As an outdoor fitness enthusiast with no woodland craft experience, the prospect of the Woodland Ways training was concerningly outside my comfort zone. Under the guidance of Jay I was eased into to a new comfort zone and have been firmly in that (very fun) place since. I have been left with whole new way to have fun outdoors and a whole new range of information I want to find out. I cannot compliment the content or the delivery of the course highly enough. It was unfalteringly professional, supportive and challenging. Brilliant fun too!

Please can you pass on my thanks to the instructors for today from me and all of the staff at St Michael's. They were fabulous! The children really loved it all and learnt a lot. We really enjoyed the day and I hope that they did too!

Private School Booking - October 2019

I just wanted to drop a quick email regarding yesterday’s assessment with Jason and I would like to say it was a fantastic day, Jason made it feel as though it wasn’t an assessment which really helped put me at ease as to be fair I was really quite nervous about it with not doing any sort of formal assessment for ages, we worked through the modules at a very manageable pace and it really did just feel like another day in the woods also on top of covering the criteria we even managed to get in a few additional pointers which was greatly appreciated. Jason is clearly a very knowledgeable person who loves what he does and it shows in how he managed the day yesterday, I would like to finish by saying that I really enjoyed the day yesterday I gained some valuable experience from it and to top it off I came away with a pass!

IOL Bushcraft Competency Assessment - September 2019

We would like to share our feedback and experience with the latest bushcraft course in the Scottish woodlands. We must say that the course has exceeded our expectations due to the amount of knowledge and practical experiences we’ve earned during the course. This is all wouldn’t happen without great and experienced trainers and instructors. I think your trainers are one of the best we have ever encountered in comparison to our previous trips since 2013 to date. Therefore, we wish to do more business with you in near future and looking forward for more courses and expedition trips. Thank you again for quality service!

5-Day Survival Course, East Lothian - September 2019

We cannot rate Jay our instructor highly enough. We felt really engaged by his enthusiasm and knowledge. We thought the day was well structured and came away excited to continue with expanding our knowledge and actively foraging. We both spend so much time outdoors anyway but this course has added a new dimension to what we see during our walks. I also want to say a thank you for having my vegan lifestyle catered for. Jay was conscious the food was kept separate and made us feel at ease to continue still enjoying the time in a different way whilst the rest of the group went to prepare the meat. As a vegan I was a little apprehensive that the meat preparation would be something hard to avoid seeing, but the way it was in a separate area and the fact we were able to do something else made a huge difference. It maintained a sense of inclusion which was great. I got everything and more I’d hoped to out of the course, so thank you!

Autumn Foraging - September 2019

We had a great day and as well as hearing various positive murmurings throughout the day from some of the team members, we’re receiving a trickle of positive feedback e-mails from other individuals of how much they enjoyed the day. It was completely different to what we have typically done for these team days previously, but it absolutely ticked all the boxes of what we wanted to achieve. Namely – to get them out of the corporate/tech environment, away from screens, back to nature, out of their comfort zones, learning new skills and interacting with each other in a completely different context and environment. The day flew by and Adam’s and Jay’s delivery of the day and the content was excellent and the team were kept captivated and attentive throughout. The balance between instruction/tuition and practical was spot on. On behalf of the team, please extend our thanks onto them.

Private Corporate Away Day - September 2019

I took part in the one day Bushcraft course today, along with my husband as an anniversary gift to him. We had and amazing day, thank you so much to Barry and Brian for sharing just a small amount of their knowledge and skill with us. So friendly and made us feel very comfortable. Would definitely recommend, and will look to do future courses with Woodland Ways

Rachel Burrows
Bushcraft Fundamentals Course - August 2019

What a splendid weekend I have had, coming home with my own handmade longbow, I haven’t felt so proud of myself in a long time. I have to praise Adam and Barry for providing excellent tuition, knowledge, anecdotes and bucket loads of patience. There was some heart ache along the way for several colleagues whose bows either snapped or cracked after spending all day working hard to produce them but I have to say they took it in good spirit and this was when Adam and Barry excelled in preparing new staves to enable the affected colleagues to at least part finish a bow. This was an excellent weekend jam packed with non-stop activity, short and to the point hands on tutorials and lots of working examples. Can I close by saying it was a 1st class course and I will definitely be coming back. Massive thanks to you all.

Bow Making Course - August 2019

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the family camp that my daughter attended yesterday. My daughter Connie and brother Rob have not stopped talking about it since they came back and even I feel like I’ve learned something. Hopefully i'll be able to book some days off and go on the next one. The instructors were both amazing, inspiring individuals with an infectious enthusiasm for the great outdoors, thank you for helping to make some wonderful memories.
