At Wild Rose Escapes we run craft, wild cookery and relaxation holidays from Strathglass in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. Our craft holidays concentrate on collecting and using natural dyes, felt making and batik. Our cookery courses teach foraging for wild foods and a range of prehistoric and traditional cooking methods outdoors.
Our relaxation retreats combine elements of craft and cooking with yoga, walking and wildlife. We run day, weekend and week long escapes. Our pre-arranged holidays have no more than six places available and we can organise bespoke short breaks for groups of 2 or more and longer holidays for groups of 4-10 people.
Our holidays are run from Crochail Wood, 100 acres of forest which is home to much wildlife, including red squirrels and pine martins.
We are both qualified archaeologists and also have lots of catering experience, including cooking for people with all sorts of special dietary requirements. Our food comes from a network of small, local producers of delicious, natural ingredients. We also have a network of people who run some elements of our holidays, including wildlife experts, walking guides and yoga teachers.
