in the Highlands
a long weekend retreat
in Aberfeldy, Scotland
with Eva & Clare
October 17th - 20th, 2019
Join Eva & Clare for a gorgeous Autumn weekend getaway in the Scottish Highlands to celebrate the transition of the seasons and our own inner transformation!
This luxurious retreat includes three nights stay at beautiful Menzie's Steading. In this unique & exquisite setting, you will enjoy six yoga practices including vinyasa flow, yin yoga, restorative yoga, yoga nidra, self-massage, sound healing & an intro to Ayurveda.
You will also enjoy three daily wholesome plant-based meals, time to restore to explore a meditative nature hike & an afternoon trip to the hot box sauna on Loch Tay! This restorative weekend is designed with pure bliss in mind, to allow all yogis a relaxing and healing experience.
Aberfeldy is one of Scotland's best-known holiday towns and offers a complete antidote to modern-day stresses. Situated in the Heart of Scotland, Aberfeldy is the perfect place to explore all there is to offer.
Edinburgh & Glasgow are both 1 1/2 hours away by car and in 1 hour you are into the Highlands.
Aberfeldy was built up in the late 18th Century around Wades Bridge, which was the first crossing of the Upper River Tay in 1733. It has a host of fine retail shops and galleries varying from traditional to the more contemporary.
It is possible to take the train nearby or we can help guests to arrange carpooling.
The home of our retreat is Menzie's Steading. This is truly a unique & beautiful property!
The historical building was completely converted in 2017. It has now been transformed into a modern open concept exclusive home. Enjoy the enclosed courtyard, spacious kitchen, elegant dining space, and the cozy lounge where you can relax by the fire.
There is good access to the river walking paths and Castle Menzies and we are not far from our hike & sauna excursions.
We will be transforming some of the generous common space into our own pop-up yoga studio! Please just bring your mat.
We will supply everything else!
