Nestled within the Cairngorms wilderness and with easy access to Aviemore, our self-catering lodge and cottages offer the perfect escape for family holidays, retreats and events. Unwind, stoke your fire, re-connect and breathe deep. Go barefoot on the lawn, pick a hammock, toast your toes and slow right down. Allow your ears to ring with silence amongst the trees. Make yourself at home.
The Dell can provide a unique, peaceful backdrop to your woodland wedding and can play host to a celebration of any kind. Working closely with the best local suppliers we offer a thoughtful and well produced package which can be easily tailored to your taste.
The Dell is well equipped and connected, yet a fantastic blank canvas for an event, corporate function or celebration of any kind. Along with accommodation for up to 28 guests, multiple event spaces and the offering of in-house catering, we relish the opportunity and challenge to produce unique and creative events.
We're delighted to have Bruce Ncube of Mema Arts Zimbabwe return who specialises in teaching traditional songs from his native country in 3 to 6 part harmonies. His teaching is in the traditional way where people would gather around a fire,at weddings, parties and even funerals and start weaving harmonies. His approach is entirely inclusive and participatory. The songs he teaches are emotionally charged and uplifting carrying messages of hope, inspiration and togetherness. This year we're also running a session where your pre-schooler can come along and immerse themselves in the rhythms and harmonies.
We're delighted to have Heather Thomson and Lindsay Warrack lead their first Adventure Yoga Retreat here at the Dell. Expect daily yoga, pranayama & meditations, guided hiking & biking (options for varying degrees of fitness) in the stunning countryside; mindful movement in the magical Highland air.
