Woodland greetings from the 'Big Bairn'.
My name is Laura, and I am committed to inspire Scotland's 'Wee Bairns' to all things nature.

Bushcraft Bairns believes every child should have regular, long-term access to a woodland or natural environment that provides them inspirational and challenging outdoor learning opportunities.


Forest School sessions with us, offer a learner-centred approach, where the ‘Bairns’ can participate and learn through self-directed play and exploration.


Our ‘Bairns’ will be given the opportunity to develop their curiosity, confidence, self-esteem, creativity, empathy, communication skills, knowledge of the natural environment, and ability to assess risk.


Whether you’re curious about forest school sessions, booking a birthday, or seeking the zen, we’re here to answer any questions.
