About Five Senses

Five Senses runs cultural walking tours and outdoor and bushcraft activities in Perthshire and Orkney, Scotland. Our aim is to to change the world by teaching people how to use their senses to connect with the natural world. Over and over again, we’ve seen how something as seemingly simple as connecting to their environment makes people feel confident, relaxed and joyful.

Whether you learn to make fire, navigate by starlight or experience Scotland in a way you’d never imagined, you’ll feel completely alive. That feeling will follow you home, so every day has a bit of magic.
