Exploring Scotland

Skills Courses

Our packrafting skills courses and walking skills courses are developed and delivered by David Walsh in Scotland. These courses are designed to help you build solid foundation skills that will enable you to feel more confident and knowledgeable in the preparation and execution of your own adventures. Additionally the very nature of adventure means occasionally things don’t always go to plan! So the courses also develop skills and knowledge for when things don’t go to plan. All of our courses have a low maximum number of participants, this allows us to tailor the courses to individual needs and everyone leaves with a sense of achievement and desire for greater adventure.

    • Packrafting provides a unique shift in travel and adventure activities. Full of skills within it own right, packrafting also allow us to combine modes of transport and undertake multi-disciplined journeys, accessing places that would be difficult within the context of a traditional activity. This means there can be a huge amount of competencies to develop.
