Venue and local area
The Dell is a real gem, set in an absolutely stunning location surrounded by the Cairngorm Mountains. The atmosphere there is so calm and relaxing you may forget stress even exists! It’s the perfect place to switch off and take some time out for yourself. Accommodation is so specious, spreading over two adjoining cottages, multiple living spaces, communal dining and a beautiful dual aspect second floor studio with open fire and views to the Cairngorms.

What is not included?
Transport from your home to and from the Dell of Abernethy
How to get there?
A month prior the retreat you will get access to a Facebook group where we are going to put you all in touch so no-one travels alone.
The Dell of Abernethy, Dell Road, Nethy Bridge, PH25 3DL
Closest airport is the Inverness airport (55min drive to the retreat venue). Second best option is either Edinburgh (2h 30min) or even Dundee (2h 30min). Edinburgh airport is bigger and you will get more budget airlines flying there.
If you are hiring a car you could potentially save by flying with Ryanair or Easy Jet to Edinburgh and then driving up. The drive up is really scenic and you could stop at the House of Bruar for food and maybe a waterfall walk. We would also recommend stopping at the Blair Castle.
The nearest station is Aviemore (30min drive to the retreat). We will hopefully have a group of clients traveling by car so we could put you all in touch to arrange a lift.

We have designed this retreat for people who love yoga, whether they are beginners or have been practicing for years.

So don’t be shy, there is no time like the present to start your journey with yoga.
I AM QUITE AN EXPERIENCED YOGI, WOULD I ENJOY YOUR RETREATS?
