Glenlivet Retreat

‘The calming atmosphere was inspiring - meeting so many strong women and learning from their disciplines (yoga, fermentation, strength training, pilates) was a definite highlight for me.’ -Corinne Thomas

A Rustic and special retreat for the soul held at my family home. This is a very unique retreat as you are invited into our home which I promise you won’t want to leave. Slow down the pace of life and immerse yourself in the soft Ladder hills. Enter a family home and join a community!

Event Details:

This retreat is about slowing down and utilising nature. There is a big emphasis on food and foraging. You are, after all, in the home of Ghillie Basan. September is a fantastic season for foraging and the light is stunning and still long-lasting.

This is for you if you want to embark on an experience that feels real. You are invited to join the lifestyle of a humble family for just a long weekend, but what you will take away with you will be life-changing

Accommodation (camping with optional glamping), food and all activities are included in the cost. 

Activities include:

Nature-based fitness sessions
Wild dooks in the Glen with my brother’s hand-crafted Sauna
Cooking over fire
Yoga throughout the Weekend
Fermentation workshops and interactive learning
Guided bothy walk/ Guided hill day

* Please note that alcohol (feel free to bring your own bottle) and massage* are not included in the cost.

* An optional extra for massage over the weekend. Our amazing therapist, Lulu, will be on-site at the weekend to deliver a range of treatments. This costs £50 for 1 hour of massage and needs to be added on at the time of booking.


Accommodation on this retreat is camping. If you do not wish to bring a tent and set up camp then there are a couple of luxury camping options available.

Yazzie’s Yurt

This is at an extra cost of £100 for the full stay. The yurt can sleep up to 4 people and has a stove we will provide wood for.

Zeki’s Cabin

This is at an extra cost of £100 for the full stay. The cabin can sleep 2 people and has a stove we will provide wood for.

Country Cottage

This is at an extra cost of £200 for the full stay. Our cosy holiday cottage on site is ideal for 3 and has a wood burning stove.

Don't forget you can bring your own set-up and we will help you pitch it and settle in on arrival.

You have full access to indoor shower/bath/toilet. We also have a sauna built by my brother that we will use over the weekend at our local rivers and fresh pools.

Food and Drink

All food will be provided over the retreat. I will be doing all the catering which will include warming hearty breakfast, packed lunches if we are out or a warm meal if on site and a nutritious dinner. I use local produce and game if the group wishes to eat local venison from the hill. There is a big emphasis on eating seasonally with the menu being mainly vegetarian. There will be the opportunity to get involved with recipe creation and learn about the nutritional value of foraged foods of the season and how to use them.

All dietary requirements are possible just let me know! Anything that we forage we will eat! I want each retreat to feel totally relaxed so if you enjoy a glass or two of red wine in the evening please feel free to bring some along or a dram as a wee night cap.
