If you are booking a course for someone special this Christmas we have plenty of exciting experiences for you to choose from. We are currently celebrating 35 years of bushcraft and in commemoration of this, we have some extra courses available led by Ray himself.
Please follow our helpful points below to ensure that you have the perfect gift in time for the big day:
Book the course in your own name, this saves any surprises being spoilt if we need to make contact regarding the booking.
Call us or email us in the office to let us know that you have booked a course as a gift and the name of the person that will be attending.
Once we make a note of the attendee name then we will get a personalised presentation pack in the post addressed to you in a plain brown envelope so that we don’t give the game away.
Once received, your presentation pack can then be wrapped ready to give to your loved one.
Book in plenty of time so that we are able to get your presentation pack to you in time for Christmas.
Presentation Pack Folder
This special gift pack contains a glossy presentation pack folder, certificate specifying the course participant, course title and date, plus a Woodlore sticker.
So lunch over and a chill coming over me from sitting down I move on. As I continue around the base of the Forest of Mar I can see woodland in the distance. After a short while I cross the Lin of Dee river and see numerous signs stating ‘no fires’, quite rightly as it is very dry and the vegetation let alone the peaty ground is perfect tinder, sadly though I come across a ring of stones with a large old fire inside. This really spoils the countryside and I am so very glad that I have been taught to leave no trace wherever I camp!
Senior Assistant Callum Hilder has started training for the Mountain Leader Award and shares his recent experience with us during a solo trip to the Cairngorm National Park:
Wilderness travel, exploration and its enjoyment are some of the principles that Woodlore was founded upon. Being a part of Woodlore has enabled me to begin making solo journeys and I have recently come back from five days in the Cairngorm National Park in Scotland, putting into practice many of the skills we teach and that I continue to learn.
Our Woodlore courses due to take place in 2019 are now available to book on the website. In celebration of our 35th Anniversary, Ray has offered his time to lead some of his usual courses, alongside some of our classics, giving everyone the chance to learn a range of bushcraft skills directly from Ray.
We are proud to be supporting Woodlore Senior Assistant Callum Hilder by stocking his exciting invention, the Elementree Kindler. Callum has designed and built an efficient and safe way of turning the standard sized logs you would find at your local petrol station or have delivered by your firewood merchant, into kindling for your wood-burning stove, firepit, pizza oven or small fireplace. Here is a little insight from Callum as to why he decided to develop this product and about his journey so far:
Our outdoor team spend much of the course season out in the woods where they rely on their clothing and equipment through all weather conditions. Every now again the team express a real passion for a particular product and recently Fundamental Instructor Keith Whitehead has been very impressed with his Littlbug Junior Camping Stove. Here is a review he has put together for us:
