The Community spirit

The Dell is a fantastic blank canvas for events and celebrations of any kind with a unique mix of creative spaces, professional infrastructure and considerate hosting.
Always open to ideas and up for a challenge, the Dell has hosted all sorts; from the madness of a music festival to the calm of a yoga retreat. Wild fine dining in the forest, intimate gigs, and quirky conventions, anything is possible.
Ross and Polly have been producing events for 10 years together and relish the buzz it brings to their place.

This Dell has very happily become a popular venue for lifestyle retreats. Secluded and surrounded by nature, there is no place better to host a small and intimate gathering of like minded people.

Over the past five years we have been very fortunate to be a part of a wide variety of wonderful retreats such as yoga, fitness, wild swimming, life coaching and more. As well as use of the accommodation here at The Dell, you will also have the options to hire our beautiful and versatile woodland tipi, arrange in-house catering and add additional activities to your line up, for example; soundscape meditation walks, acapella singing, foraging and wilderness skills. Please get in touch for more information or to request our 'Retreat Brochure'.

Our Retreat Brochure

Set on the edge of a sleepy village, next to beautiful river with beautiful mountain views, Dell of Abernethy is an absolute gem of a place. I love the homely cottages and the peaceful location. The big tipi nestled in the woods is one of the coolest spaces I have seen too. You feel completely immersed in the wilderness here, especially cycling through the forests to nearby lochs for a swim and hiking in the hills. What makes this place really stand out though is the care and professionalism of Polly and her team. They are friendly, welcoming and absolutely brilliant at what they do. This really is a very special place, but don’t tell everyone as its one of the Cairngorms best kept secrets!
