FOUR DAY ITINERARY
DAY 1: TO THE HIGHLANDS
Land at Inverness Airport and transfer directly up to Alladale Wilderness Reserve. On arrival at Alladale, get settled in one of the beautiful highland lodges. The team will welcome you and explain the ethos and vision for the Reserve over a glass of organic wine. Alternatively, get adventurous and cycle off-road to the Reserve with our expert mountain bike guides, arriving in time for dinner! Enjoy a dinner prepared by the in-house chef and then either relax or see some local live music.
DAY 2: OUT ON THE HILLS
After a local organic breakfast, head off either on foot or in the 4X4’s to explore Alladale with the Reserve Manager and learn about the conservation work on site. Visit the wildcat breeding programme, spot red deer on the hill and keep an eye out for some golden eagles.
If desired, there is the option to spend the day out fishing on one of Alladale’s stunning hill lochs, full of wild brown trout.
In the evening you can stay over at a mountain bothy and cook dinner with the chef on the open fire – a chance to get to grips with butchery and wild cooking while enjoying dining al fresco!
DAY 3: SKILL BUILDING IN THE WILD
Choose from a variety of excursions; Alladale has it all to offer. Go mountain biking, fishing, clay pigeon shooting or hiking on the lookout for wildlife. Alternatively, the conference room is available for seminars or discussions. We work alongside specialist leadership and employee development providers and Alladale is a wonderful location to carry out these programmes, which can be arranged on request.**
In the evening, enjoy a local whisky tasting (no trip to the Highlands is complete without a wee dram) from one of the local distilleries, followed by a final dinner together. Relax and watch a documentary, enjoy the sauna, or sit by the fire with a book.

After a lazy morning, hearty breakfast and another chance to stretch your legs around the lodge, transfers will be provided back to Inverness airport to fly home.
