A Highland Journey

Hosted by The European Nature Trust

Sunday October 20th - Saturday October 24th 2020


Just an hour’s drive north of Inverness, Alladale Lodge is ready to welcome you and your friends to a very exclusive stay, where the hospitality and ranger teams will ensure you have a fun packed time in the lodge and out on the wilderness reserve.

Alladale Wilderness Reserve’s 100 sq kms feature ten hill lochs, two rivers and the UK’s most northerly Caledonian pine forest. The Reserve is a pioneering re-wilding project within the UK, and has been the focus of numerous TV productions and commercial shoots. Days can be filled with healthy hikes, biking, fly fishing, 4×4 safari, wildlife spotting, photography, picnics, foraging or simply just relaxing.

We pride ourselves on serving eco-local food and much of the vegetables and herbs are sourced from our very own gardens. Dinners are served in the candle-lit dining room and can be
followed by a game of snooker, whilst enjoying a fine malt or chatting around the fireplace. TENT’s Highland Conservation Journey is suitable for groups of between 8 and 12 people.

We will discuss with you in advance all details for your fully inclusive trip including bespoke aspects and dietary requirements.
