About Craft and be Restful


My name is Vic Rastall and I set up Craft and be Restful in February 2023.

Growing up on a hill farm in the Trossachs, I learnt to love lochs, rivers, hills, trees, cows and dogs (not in any particular order), I've always enjoyed working and playing in beautiful and remote places.

I spent many years travelling solo around the world, but have settled in Argyll and Bute.

I've worked in outdoor education for over 25 years, with everyone from primary schools to overseas expeditions, and I've also built my own sequin clothing business although this is now on the backburner.

In 2020 I completed a Woodland Activity Leader course with Wild Things in Findhorn, and added a Coastal Activity Leader to that in 2022.

I have a variety of outdoor qualifications including BCU Level 4 Canoe Coach and  Winter Mountain Leader, hold an outdoor first aid certificate and freelance for several outdoor companies including Wilderness Scotland and Beyond Adventure.

I love sharing my knowledge of flora, fauna and folklore with whoever I'm with. I'm very much the more I know, the more I know I don't know... you're welcome to join me on the journey.

When you've made it over the Rest and be Thankful, come and Craft and be Restful....
