    Richard’s association with the outdoors began through the Army Cadets and the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme, leading him to the many mountainous areas of Britain. He found himself increasingly drawn to the wilder and remote locations such as Dartmoor and especially the North West Highlands and Islands of Scotland, which quickly became favourite haunts.

    Ian grew up in Perthshire, where he would spend his school holidays in the hills of Blair Atholl and Crieff.  His love of the outdoors lead him to the army where he was posted both at home and abroad.  After leaving the army, Ian worked for the British Military Government in Berlin, until German Reunification.

    He then spent a couple of years travelling around Europe, often living from a rucksack.  This is where he developed a great respect for Bushcraft and Survival skills, trying where ever possible, to live from the land.  After realising all rabbit tasted the same, he returned home to Perth, where he now lives with his wife and young son.

    Over the last 10 years, Ian has tried just about every adventure sport, including caving, abseiling, climbing and canoeing.  He is keen on natural navigation and foraging and has also completed courses on friction fire lighting and map reading.  He has just finished a course on wild food.

    Ian also has a passion for winter camping and can be found in the woods around Perth most weekends when the mercury plummets.  As he has said, if you can master bushcraft during the winter months in Scotland, you can do it pretty much anywhere.  Ian is always keen to learn new skills to pass on to others.  He gets great enjoyment here at Survival School seeing others achieving things for the first time.

    Andy’s love of the wilderness started at a young age and as soon as he could he joined the Air Cadets where his thirst for knowledge of survival skills really took off.
    Then whilst attending basic military survival training within the Royal Marines he fell in love with the art of wilderness survival, which in turn lead him into the fascinating world of bushcraft and wilderness living.  He attended a course with Survival School and the rest is history.
