Log Cabin in the Mountains with Living Roof: 10 Days in the Scottish Highlands

I travel to Scotland to stay in a log cabin with a living roof of moss and grass. I walk alone amongst the moss covered enchanted forest. Travelling up a small mountain river, hopping across boulders trying to film the elusive red squirrel and beautiful fall/autumn colours on the trees.. Wild Deer roam past the log cabin in this pristine mountain wilderness.I get a fire going in the log cabin open woodstove and give a tour of this cosy, rustic log cabin in the wild. I am spending the next 10 days in the highlands of Scotland, amongst the shadows of the Mountains in the Cairngorms National Park. Four of those days are spent on a canoe expedition down the river Spey, but that video will follow this one. For the rest of the time, I am with my wife, dog and friends Matt and Tracy and their two dogs. Thanks for joining me on this Scotland adventure!

Bushcraft Camp with Watch Tower: Off Grid Shelter Build

I build a bushcraft camp with lookout tower and ladder. This bushcraft super shelter has a large lean-to shelter, smaller shelter with moss roof, dog house, a watch tower with ladder that is accessible only from the inside of the camp. It also has a log store built on the outside. It has a kitchen/cooking area, plus a cooking crane made from sticks. The shelter also has a timber frame roof with retractable tarp overhead. The camp is fully enclosed with perimeter walls and has a small gate at the entrance. I built this supershelter mostly solo, but on some days my dad would help, as well as my small jack russell dog. I started building this shelter with little knowledge and only a few cheap hand tools. As I developed my skillset I began to use different hand tools and learn various woodworking techniques and joinery to make the shelter stronger. I have spent many nights alone in the forest in this camp. I taught myself survival skills, developed bushcraft knowledge and learnt how to work with nature. Originally I wanted to build a log cabin style structure, and scribe the logs, notch them and build a much more stable structure. But sadly there was not enough large logs and I did not want to cut down loads of living trees to do it. At times I did use primitive technology, and even used natural cordage. However, I soon found that I had to replace this cordage often, so it made sense to use man-made materials to help extend the life of the building. I spent many memorable solo overnight camps in this shelter, and had many happy mermories building it. The shelter has since been dismantled, and all of the wood put towards building the thatch saxon house which I have recently been building on my channel. It's nice to know that the bushcraft camp, which was such a huge part of my channel, is continuing to live on through other shelters! Thanks to all who followed me on this adventure. I hope there will be many more that you can follow me on in the future! - Mike DAD'S CHANNEL TA FISHING: https://www.youtube.com/tafishing BUILD A CABIN FROM PALLET WOOD: https://youtu.be/1HA4zY8xCyY BUILDING THE BUSHCRAFT CAMP: https://youtu.be/rcihSMpsDn0 GET TA OUTDOORS MERCHANDISE: https://taofficial.com TA OUTDOORS PATCHES: https://www.taoutdoors.com/shop/ INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/taoutdoorofficial FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/totallyawesomeoutdoors TWITTER: https://twitter.com/OutdoorsTa FILMING & CAMERA GEAR I USE: Main Camera: https://amzn.to/2SG9unv Drone: https://amzn.to/2WSQ1za Standard Lens: https://amzn.to/2E5LFxs Wide Angle Lens: https://amzn.to/2E3U6t0 Zoom Lens: https://amzn.to/2tfb4yl 50mm fixed Lens: https://amzn.to/2BvUAGN Main Camera Microphone: https://amzn.to/2I9tVVQ Secondary Camera Mic: https://amzn.to/2WYP3RQ Radio Microphone: https://amzn.to/2Ifqaym Camera Light: https://amzn.to/2MYA4mn Powerbank: https://amzn.to/2WYQVdk Tripod: https://amzn.to/2DtumVm GoPro Action Cam: https://amzn.to/2UPS9Wx GoPro Chest Mount: https://amzn.to/2tfCkwu GoPro Head Mount: https://amzn.to/2WWBra3 Camera SD Cards: https://amzn.to/2WVWcT5 Editing Laptop: https://amzn.to/2BtRK4S BUSHCRAFT GEAR I USE: Bushcraft Pants/Trousers: https://amzn.to/2SFY8jf 3x3 Metre Tarp: https://amzn.to/2IjM4Az Hammock: https://amzn.to/2N0Vpvx Hammock underblanket: https://amzn.to/2GmeBmT Thermal Camping Air Mattress: https://amzn.to/2N0uQXs Awesome Affordable Bushcraft Knives: https://amzn.to/2SLhWle Medium Axe: https://amzn.to/2E5NBWK Gransfors Bruks Small Forest Axe: https://amzn.to/2E5FkC1 Small Hatchet: https://amzn.to/2I319Gb Affordable Firesteel: https://amzn.to/2N1D3L8 Folding Camp Grill: https://amzn.to/2BvF6lM Durable GPS Watch: https://amzn.to/2N1fQZl #bushcraft #building #offgrid #supershelter

Fishing in a 50 Year Old Wood Boat | Catch & Cook | Sea...

Join us as we take a 50 year old mahogany boat onto the ocean to do some sea fishing. We catch and cook fresh fish straight from the ocean and eat it just hours later on the beach. We are fishing for Black Bream and Mackerel, but we also put some bait out for larger species such as Conger Eels. We catch over 30 fish and I even hook into a monster on ultra light gear!

How Fast will Thatch Burn?

How fast will thatch burn? We do a test to see how fast it takes for thatch (water reed) to burst into flame. We have recently been building a bushcraft anglo-saxon house and for the roof material we used traditional thatch, similar to what the saxons would have built with. We have been deciding whether to build a fireplace inside the thatched house, as the saxons would have done, but naturally, we have our concerns as to whether the roof might catch fire. So we thought we would put it to the test and see how flammable it really is!

Thatch House Build: Primitive Moss Insulation | Bushcraft Saxon House (PART 11)

We continue building the bushcraft saxon house. This episode we use moss as insulation for the shelter. This is a traditional primitive method used to seal gaps in the logs on log cabins in both Scandinavia and North America. I gathered moss from the nearby area and used a stick to push it into the gaps in the logs. This will help to insulate the bushcraft house and keep it warmer in winter by keeping out cold wind. Dad then joins me to help mix clay and straw and use primitive technology to clay the inside walls of the saxon house. This method is said to be widely used by Anglo Saxons and is known as wattle and daub. The mixture usually consists of clay, straw and water. However, traditionally they also added animal dung which would act as a binding agent to prevent cracks in the walls when it dries. There are still a few more jobs left to do on the saxon shelter. I need to cap the roof ridge, which I will try and do soon. Then we need to finish the clay walls inside, and build a door for the front entrance.

Building a Thatch Roof House with Hand Tools: Bushcraft Saxon Shelter (PART 12)

We're in the woods building a bushcraft saxon house using hand tools. In part 12 we use an auger and hand drill to build the door, we then use long straw or combed straw to cap the ridge on the top of the thatch roof of the saxon shelter. The combed straw is called "triticale" and is a mix of wheat and rye. The reason we used it to build the top of the roof is because it is much more pliable and easy to bend then water reed. It also has the disease resistance of wheat and the hardiness of rye, which makes it last longer on the roof. To finish off the roof, I used a barrel eye scotch auger and some hand carved wood pegs to fix some cross supports to the top of the thatch roof. This will help pin down the ash liggers (battens) and keep the thatch pinned down during heavy rain and wind. We finish the clay walls inside, using the wattle and daub technique. The Saxon House is now pretty much finished. We have tried to keep it as historically correct as we could. But for things such as the door, we used recycled pallet wood and iron hinges. The reason we did this is because we wanted the door to last and not rot away. It has been an incredible experience building with hand tools. Working with nature to create an ancient home of our ancestors. The Anglo Saxons were very resourceful and would have used whatever natural materials they could find to build their bushcraft shelters and wood houses.

Dartmoor in the Rain | Wild Camping on Dartmoor in Extreme Conditions | OEX...

I Took my wife on her first proper Wild Camp in Dartmoor National park in terrible weather conditions. We struggled to hike on high ground so we stayed low, but even so the Wind and Rain made it tough going. My wife stayed positive throughout and we had a great time together even dealing with a mini flash flood that made us have to move the location of our OEX Husky III tent didn't dampen our spirits. we ate British Army rations and enjoyed the beautiful scenery Dartmoor has to offer. We can't wait to return.
