RETREAT CENTRE IN THE SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS
With a view to increasing levels of self- sufficiency, we have over the last five years developed a large garden area, which encompasses a small forest garden alongside more traditional raised beds and a small soft fruit orchard. Embracing organic and permaculture principles, the garden now provides an increasing amount of tasty perennials and annuals, as well as creating a vibrant habitat with lots of wild edges, all with marvellous southerly views over Inverness. Our happy flock of Indian Runner ducks bring much joy to the garden and keep the slugs at bay.
There are also numerous terraces with fruit and nut crops spread around the croft as well as a host of wild foraging opportunities throughout the seasons.
