Crea un paisaje de fieltro en Inverness
Guests will be introduced to a wide colour palette of ethically sourced merino wool reflecting the rich colours of the Scottish Highlands. We will then tease apart and layer the wool to form a landscape scene before adding sparkling strands, and other felted fibres to represent sheep, trees and crofts. We will then sprinkle warm soapy water onto our artwork before rubbing it between 2 layers of bubblewrap. It's a bit like shinking a jumper in the wash! Our fibres will eventually bond, forming a firm piece of fabric. The artwork is rinsed and excess water squeezed out. Once dry, your unique felted landscape will be ready for you to take home and frame. Other things to note The cabin is accessed via a series of steps and gentle slopes which may be challenging for guests with limited mobility. The cabin has quite a low roof so please mind your head if you're over 5' 8"

Ruta guiada en bicicleta desde Grantown-on-Spey
Meet Jim, your bike guide for the day at our local Bothy Bakery for freshly made coffee, perhaps a muffin or scone and a sandwich for lunch. There we will take time to discuss what sort of riding experience you would like and agree on what route might work best before heading off. You can choose from a variety of distances and climbing but as a rough guide 12 miles and 600 feet of ascent is about average for the time we have available. From Grantown on Spey there is a fantastic variety of guided gravel rides on offer alongside the mighty River Spey, through the wonderful pine forest or up into the hills with views of the Cairngorm Mountains and sometimes even the sea! Jim has a great local knowledge of different tracks, trails and roads to make sure that you will have a unique experience in this beautiful corner of the Cairngorm National Park. With him you can discover abandoned farms, ride through the forest on ribbons of pine needles or soar above the Dava Moor on spectacular tracks. Your guided ride finishes back in Grantown on Spey at The High Street Merchants art cafe where we can enjoy a well deserved lunch.

Meditación relajante y autodesarrollo con caballos en Skye
On arrival you shall be greeted and taken round the stables for a tour. Once acquainted we shall give you a few moments to spend time with the horses allowing you to choose a horse you feel drawn to work with during your experience. With guidance, you shall be given time to groom and get to know your horse, allowing you time to get comfortable in their space. Once relaxed, you shall be taken on a guided meditation journey with your pony. Depending on the horse/pony chosen/weight restrictions, this may be done on horseback. Once your meditation is complete we invite you to take part in Equine Assisted Therapeutic Coaching 1-2-1 sessions within the outdoor arena or stable environment. This will allow you to work alongside your horse and coach on any areas of your life or self that you wish to improve, for example fears, work life, relationships, confidence, past traumas, negative self beliefs. Partnering with the horse to work through your beliefs, they will work with you as a visual aid to help you pin point the obstacles preventing you from reaching your goals in life. Reacting to our body language, the horse acts as a mirror reflecting far more about our Self back to us through their reactions than we can ever achieve by looking at ourselves in the mirror. Leave us feeling lighter, with a better sense of Self ready to take on your goals with a clear head.
