We had glorious sunshine last weekend, which was even more special as we ran our first Hen Weekend of 2017.
We picked the group up from Inverness airport on Friday afternoon and took them to their accommodation at the Cannich Holiday park, which is the perfect place for a hen group to stay, as the chalets have everything you need, have been newly re-furbished, are located right next to the river and are run by a lovely couple (Alan and Amanda Hood).
We met the group on Saturday morning. They had chosen to spend the morning felting and the afternoon pony trekking.
We walked over to the village hall and spent a couple of hours making felted wall hangings using naturally dyed fleece. Each hen made one to take home as a memory of their weekend with us. We then headed up to our woodland where we had an outdoor lunch and time to see the goats and walk around. After lunch we drove out to Cougie, which is one of the most exciting and beautiful places to go pony trekking. The group had a 1 hour trek out into the hills and woodland, in glorious sunshine. After trekking we headed to Plodda waterfalls, which due to the snow fall the week before was a very impressive sight.
Supper in the Round House
The hen party had supper in our round house, which is a wattle and daub structure with a living roof. We had a cosy fire in the middle. After venison stew and chocolate pudding, Ele came and ran a Gaelic singing workshop with the group. After a lovely evening we dropped the group back at their accommodation ready for the next day…
Sunday morning was a gentle outdoor yoga session with Joanie and indoor relaxation. Then up to the woods for a relaxing lunch and a walk in the woods to see the sheep and then home.
It was a lovely weekend to run, full of great ladies, close family and great friends, always such a pleasure for us to host these events, when people get together.
If you fancy organizing an alternative hen party/weekend or a family or friends get together we can do all sorts of different activities and tailor it to your group. Get in touch..www.wildrose-escapes.co.uk
