Hen Party Activities in the Highlands

Hen party ideas with Wild Rose Escapes 

Foraging by the river

If you are looking for a beautiful place for your Hen weekend, our area of the Highlands has so much to offer, with Glen Affric on our doorstep and Loch Ness just down the road. This year we have had great fun running our hen weekends and groups have chosen from a range of activities including:

Prehistoric cookery, wild food foraging, felting, natural dyeing, felting with a pony, walking and pony trekking.

One of the highlights many have said was feasting in the yurt, eating the delicious slow cooked meal, which our groups had prepared and cooked in the ground. We ran hen weekends for smaller and larger groups this year, the largest being Susie’s hen party which was 18 people, a great group from all over Scotland.

More recently, we have spent the past few weeks building an Iron Age style roundhouse which we will use instead of the yurt for our hen parties next year. It is a beautiful space, made from local hazel and daub, prepared with a lot of help from our friends in the village. This traditional style round house has a turf roof and a fire in the center, it has a wonderful atmosphere and comes alive with candle light and chat!

At the beginning of this month we had a stall at the Glasgow Wedding Collective Fair. It was a great exhibition of all things alternative you can do for your wedding;  great bands, venues, caterers etc, the website has more details, so if you want to create a slightly alternative wedding it would be worth a look. This weekend we will be at the Bogbain farm vintage wedding fair. A local farm which has a lovely barn which can be used as a wedding venue. After that things are slowing down for the winter ahead, however we will be running  more hen parties from April 2014 on wards, so if you are interested in finding out more get in touch.
