                                                    activitiesThe Scottish Woodland Skills Centre is situated only 3 miles from the historic town of Alyth.  Our idyllic, rural setting is at Bamff, situated on the edge of Perthshire and Angus.  Perthshire is known as Big Tree Country and it is the trees that provide the resources and environment for all our activities.

At our purpose built training venue; a large hard-standing area, a grass activity space surrounded by woodland, and an off-grid wooden bothy, powered by a wind turbine, heated by a wood stove and built by volunteers from recycled materials,  we run courses and events throughout the year.  

Whilst basic in certain amenities, the venue is very much in keeping with our woodland situation and it is perfect for participating in traditional crafts and outdoor activities.

Our courses range from wood carving  to knife making,  chainsaw use to teenage adventure days and more information can be found under Courses & Events. We have a programme of regular courses, mostly running at weekends, and also offer drop in activity sessions every Wednesday during school holidays. Bespoke activities for groups can be arranged.

Clive Bowman and Dick Craig operate this not for profit Social Enterprise and look forward to welcoming individuals, groups and families to the very heart of rural Perthshire.
