It's January.  New Year’s Eve has come and gone. Old habits will shortly strong-arm your resolutions into submission and oblivion.  Maybe a critical inner voice will guilt you into grudging obedience.  Need some help?  Come rest and do inner work with renowned herbalist and wilderness therapist, Owen Okie.  Renew yourself in the beautiful and remote Scottish Highlands.  You choose what you want to work on, exploring nature, both inner and outer, of our winter landscape or within the shelter of our lovely, warm Bothy.  Come to grips with parts of yourself that prevent growth and well-being.  Make steps toward your highest potential through a variety of nature-based practices.  Gaze into the flames of our warm woodstove and reflect.  Venture out when you are ready, with new tools for transforming stress into resilience.   Spots are filling up quickly!  Email to reserve your place.  More information can be found at

Excellent bothy with facilities

Reviewed on September 12, 2017

Fantastic bothy with the bonus of modern services - loos, showers and hot water. The bothy retains its original gas lighting which gives a lovely cosy feeling, and heating is via a wood/peat burning stove. There is a kitchen area but you'll need to bring a camping stove to use in there. Location is great - a nice remote glen near to the water and hills.
