Stop the drugs and alcohol. Stop partying. Save the cash to pay off your dept and slowly start to sort your life out.
This***** You are not ready for rough living.
If you do go leave the Gun in the House. you dont own land and getting permission to shoot will be next to zero and the police wont take to kindly to anyone living rough and armed.
Rabbits you can trap, but the use of snares is illegal. best bet for food would be fish. Plenty rivers, Lochs and Sea shores..Permits may be required on most rivers and Lochs though the small Lochans in the Mountains are generally free as is Sea fishing.
Chopping down trees is not a good idea. 1. the wood doesn't burn and 2. you are damaging someone's property, if someone sees you the Police will be called.
If you need firewood best place to look would be around the shores of a Loch for drift wood and in wooded areas of course. (take a piece of rope to carry a wood bundle) I have been up north many times wild camping, July this year was my latest venture and i know a lot of secluded spots where you dont see another person for days if not weeks, but one or two places i've been not one bit of wood was to be found. No Trees and no driftwood coming from the Sea.
And Finally, January....Are you Mental. ? If you plan on using a tent for shelter forget it, you will need fire at least 12 hours a day, Best bet would be to Build a shelter with a bench for sleeping on and have a Long Fire right in front of it. You would be spending most of your day Looking for Wood and food, fail on one and you are getting yourself into a heap of trouble.
Wait until May before you venture up north and Plan. That will give you time to clean yourself up and clear your head.
