This Page: Unwind in Nature

Unwind in Nature.

Whether you’re a little overstretched, feeling tired, or recovering from illness, few places can offer such idyllic tranquillity as the Outer Hebrides. 

Natural stress reliefNew for 2012, the idea for this guided holiday ‘Unwind in Nature’ came from James MacLetchie, who became well known nationally through his work with Monty Halls on the BBC’s Great Hebridean Escape programme.

The locations have been specially chosen to give you complete relaxation, inspiration and rejuvenation.  James provides all the guiding on the holiday, which can be tailored to suit the number of guests wishing to book for any particular date.

For example, you may arrive by sea or air and have James’s services on an exclusive basis, travelling with you in your own (suitable insurance cover required) or a flydrive car.  He can lead you in his car if you prefer. 

James can also guide an additional party of guests in another car - by ‘sharing’ him, you can enjoy a reduced cost.   He can also provide transport up to 7 guests at very reasonable cost.  Please ask one of our advisors to receive a personalised quotation.

In his own words, this is James’s description of the unwinding experience.

Relaxing Scottish Holiday“Your journey takes you through a timeless landscape etched with the remnants of a people’s struggle to tame the land from as far back as eight thousand years ago. 

You may discover a different world and connect with the harmonious energies of nature.  

Sea caves are carved into the rocks and shell-sand beaches, bathed by the cool refreshing waters of the Atlantic Ocean, shimmer in the pure light. This is a magical paradise and the perfect place to awaken equilibrium and joy. 

Nature allows us the opportunity to be inspired and healed; encounters with wildlife are a key to the rejuvenation that many seek.
The first three nights of your journey are spent at the comfortable Harris Hotel, Tarbert. 

In Harris you’ll find both relaxation and inspiration, as we begin to explore ancient sites, beaches, islands and flower filled machairs. 

The second stage of your holiday takes us to Baile na Cille Guest House, a former manse, in the stunning location of Uig on the Isle of Lewis. 

Holidays guided by James MacLetchie

Accommodation here is simpler, but the food is excellent and spectacular landscape is on your doorstep.  Forget the phone (no coverage) and step into golden vistas, walk through ancient glens and get close to wildlife.  Visit ancient standing stones where people once worshipped and celebrated the bounty of nature. 

After your seven days of unwinding, I hope you’ll feel that you can return to everyday life with renewed vigour, patience and enduring feelings of well-being.”  Best wishes - James
