What will we do?

You'll trust the magic of Scotland to show you what you need to learn about yourself, your career, and your life path.

Forget the bustling city noise, the blue-lights from your screens, the endless binging of your notifications!

We'll spend a week hidden away in the highlands of Inverness, tucked away in a cozy Mansion, surrounded by Mother Nature, campfires, herbal teas and a lot of sleeping in. Let's take this time to DISCONNECT from the world, and RECONNECT with ourselves and everything that surrounds us.

your accommodation for the week

Mullardoch House

All this magic will be taking place in this picture-postcard Edwardian lodge, built on sacred, Celtic ground. Surrounded by granite mountains, a flowing river, and acres of nature – who wouldn’t want a social-media detox here? It used to be a hunting lodge – now, it will be our very own vegetarian haven

what to expect

amenities

So what's plan?! ( expect changes+ surprises)

WHAT WILL YOU DO?!

Welcome to inverness!

The country best known for unicorns and the Loch Ness Monster welcomes you! Everyone will be arriving at different times, so we know how physically drained you must be!  So as with tradition, we will have a casual welcome dinner. Play a few get-to-know-you games, as we sit, unwind, and enjoy a cup of hot tea, glass of wine or whisky – pick your poison! 😉

glen afric park

Rise and shine, and get your Wellies on as we take a day trip to Glen Afric Park. Time to redirect our energies and truly reconnect with Mother Nature – breathe the fresh, crisp, Spring air and enjoy a real-life ASMR of the gorgeous rivers and waterfalls. 

Silent nature walk

With all the noise we hear in our day-to-day lives, like the binging of our phones – whether it be an Instagram notification, a WhatsApp message, or an email- the one thing we came for this retreat, is peace. What better way to find that peace we’ve been craving for than a silent walk through the estate of Mullardoch. 

workshop day

Herbalism, bespoke teas, and healing our nervous systems – all what a Digital Detox Retreat needs!

road trip to the isle of skye

Lochs, highlands, Old Man Storr, whisky distillery tasting tour- I hope you’re ready to take the scenic route because it’ll be a long drive! We’ll take packed lunches, and have a mobile moving picnic as we journey to the Isle of Skye. 

PS: Sleeping is ALSO an option hehe. 

journaling + women's circle with nadine

What better way to close a Dear Alyne Retreat with compliment journals and an amazing, intimate Women’s Circle led by our very own Nadine McNeil.
