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.
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
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.
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.
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
