The Wild Highland Retreat, 2021

From the minute I arrived, I felt I could breathe again. And later on the mats, surrounded by likeminded people all frazzled from 2020 The Year of Covid, I felt I was sharing a very special peaceful experience I will never forget. The food was incredible – nourishing and delicious, and the hospitality and surrounds were outstanding. Last but not least, nothing was neglected – absolutely everything was thought of and the organisation was faultless.

I have never been on a retreat before and was not sure what to expect. This experience was beyond any of my hopes or expectations. There was laughter and there were tears – being in a group of like minded and supportive women is a powerful combination. The accommodation was stunning – extremely comfortable and luxurious but also relaxed and friendly with a wonderful range of activities laid on by the Estate. As for the food – if I could be given food like that every day, I would happily turn vegetarian. A really very very special experience and sincerely hope to return again and again.

Jess, Alexa and Lucy have found the perfect formula for a weekend retreat. The location couldn’t have been more beautiful. It was a totally relaxing, reflective and restorative experience, which struck exactly the right balance between yoga, mindfulness, relaxation time and activities. So much thought went into every aspect of the retreat, including incredible vegetarian (and vegan) food, guided Highland walks, and loch swimming. I can’t recommend highly enough if you are looking for an opportunity to escape the city and rejuvenate!

This retreat came at the ideal time after a difficult second lockdown when I was feeling absolutely burnt out and anxious. I left feeling like a new person: reinvigorated, motivated, relaxed and rested. My body (and mind) seemed to let go of 12 months of tension in just a few days. It was everything I had hoped for and more and I would book again without even a second thought. The setting was stunning, the accommodation incredibly unique plus the food was plentiful, delicious and healthy. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
