About

I am Leon Durbin – the Chief instructor and founder of Wildwood Bushcraft . I am an ecologist, a qualified bushcraft instructor and have been teaching people bushcraft full time since 2005.

Wildwood run a wide range of survival and bushcraft courses in Scotland and in Sussex. We also run expeditions to Arctic Sweden, Canada, and canoe/sea kayak trips in Scotland.  I am fortunate to live in a beautiful spot on the West Coast of Scotland with my wife Alison, (who helps with running the business) and our two girls.  It is a fascinating playground for someone like myself and a fantastic place to learn bushcraft survival skills.

The purpose of this blog is to share my thoughts about bushcraft survival strategies, to talk about my current activities and experiences, and hopefully stimulate discussion!
