If you and your groups of friends are looking for something a little different for a hen weekend, we may be able to help. If you would like something a little alternative, unique and outdoors then a Wild Rose hen party may be just the thing. We have put together a very flexible package, depending on how much time and money you have as a group. You can add days, or take activities off depending on what you would prefer.
Walking in Glen Affric, visit Plodda Waterfalls, go Wild Swimming, Wild Food Foraging, Natural Dyeing, Communal Felting, Yoga, Capoeira, Pony Trekking, Feasting & more….
You can choose to create your own prehistoric feast, build an iron age pit oven together, light fires, gather wild greens and prepare your feast for the evening. While this is slowly cooking in the ground, the group can get started on making a communal wall hanging for your hen, which she can keep forever as a memento of her hen do and her friends. Use beautiful, naturally dyed local wools to create a something unique.
Spend the evening feasting on what you have spent the morning preparing! Slow roasted lamb, venison or fish & local vegetables. Enjoy the atmosphere of our Iron Age style round house, candle lit with a fire burning in the middle.
The following day we will take you to one of Scotland’s highest waterfalls, Plodda falls, on the way to Cougie trekking centre. At Cougie we will roll up the wall hanging your group has started to make and harness it to the back of Nutmeg, a beautiful Highland pony. She will felt this Mongolian style, by pulling the roll around the field for a couple of hours. During this time your group can just enjoy the scenery with a picnic lunch or some of you may fancy going on a pony trek for an hour or two with Sasha and some of the other ponies. Ride out to some the most beautiful landscapes in Britain, Glen Affric national nature reserve. When Nutmeg has finished her part, we will unroll the wall hanging and finish it off by hand. A wonderful gift to give your hen!
If you would like an extra day or two with us, you can just choose to add some extra excursions or activities… Take a trip and walk above Loch Ness and visit Rebecca in her pottery. Visit Ali on her croft and meet her flock of Gotland sheep, take a spinning lesson.
We have a list of recommended local palces to stay on our “Accommodation Pages”. Groups book their own accommodation from a wide range of local options which include; Cannich caravan and campsite, local B&B’s and self catering options.
