Wild Anam


Hullo, I'm Caoimhe Keohane, originally from the wild landscapes of West Cork, Ireland, and now inspired by the majestic beauty of the Scottish Highlands. My journey is driven by a passion for folklore, mythology, and storytelling, which I share as pathways to reconnect people with their inner wild.

Wild Anam, meaning Wild “Soul" in Gaelic, embodies my belief there is a wilderness within each of us. Through Wild Anam, I offer experiences that blend nature connection and mythology.

Growing up on Ireland's rugged west coast, I was captivated by the raw beauty and ancient stories of the land. Drawn to Scotland for work in nature restoration, I discovered the deep ancestral ties between Ireland and Scotland, further fueling my love for Gaelic mythology and folklore.

Currently residing near Inverness with my partner, a bushcraft and survival instructor, we steward a small woodland where we run courses and workshops. When I'm not exploring the landscape, I'm sharing the magic of Wild Anam through storytelling, events, and workshops, connecting people to the ancient wisdom and heritage of the land.
