A Re-Wilding Journey in Scotland (29th Sept – 5th Oct 2019)

With The Life Adventure

During this week long retreat you will explore Alladale Wilderness Reserve and other interesting ‘hot spots’ in the North of Scotland, in search of wild landscapes and the resident varied wildlife.  Guest hosts during the week are Paul Lister (custodian and founder of Alladale Wilderness Reserve), David Hetherington (wildcat and lynx ecologist) and Roy Dennis (the UK’s leading raptor & re-wilding expert).

The stunning Alladale Lodge will be your base for the week, where you will have full use of all the facilities and enjoy locally sourced, delicious and honest meals. There will be ample opportunity to mingle with like minded enthusiasts and professionals with a passion for the Highlands and re-wilding.

About Alladale

A private wilderness reserve, in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, has a story to share. With 100 square kilometres of wilderness, it is a place of natural beauty and a nature conservation project. It is a humbling experience to be stood on top one of the reserve’s many hills, gazing across a mountain loch, aware that there may not be another person for miles in any direction; enjoying the sense that you are part of it all.
