Kintyre Forest and Nature Connection

Kintyre Forest and Nature Connection

Forest Bathing is a slow nature connection wellness practice. Kintyre forest therapy invites you to really slow down become present and connect to what is around you using all your senses. This can be anywhere in nature on the beach noticing the pattern of the waves, feeling the direction of the wind the sound of the water, and the patterns on the sand.

It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit. - Robert Louis Stevenson

When in the trees, I will invite you to connect to the colours of the woods, the sound of the river, the texture of the soft green moss. I will deepen your connection through Celtic folk tales and meanings of the trees and the water poetry and end with a tea ceremony to taste the woods and reflect on your experience around the campfire. I will guide you in unique hidden glens and beaches to help you discover the hidden mysteries and beauty of Kintyre and the islands.

Walks last approximately 2 hrs and can be designed around your unique needs with or without dogs and children.

I also offer day retreats offering a whole day experience with snacks, tea, and a campfire.

Customer Review

We had an incredible afternoon with Kintyre Forest Therapy on Saturday. A wee reset in nature and some time out of busy, hectic lives to appreciate how incredible our natural environment is, taking time to listen, feel, see and smell, reflecting on the wonder of it all. I was lucky enough to do my Pioneer badge in Guides age 11 at Lochgoilhead centre with Ailsa G and so very grateful she has taken some of that with her and built a wealth of knowledge having undertaken insightful learning and reading to bring this fabulous service to Kintyre, at Barr Glen
