Bring your children out to the wonderful wilds of Strathfarrar and let us entertain them for the day while you relax. Either do a restful nothing, head out to the hills for a walk, or perhaps make a basket, or bake some bread in our outdoor oven. Staff will provide opportunities to keep your hands busy while your mind wanders.

We will offer a range of engaging activities for your children – building, exploring, looking after our animals, wild foraging and more. At the end of the day we can all gather round the fire and tell stories of our adventures – or day dreams!

“Had a wonderful family day at the Shieling project. Fantastic project and great to show the kids where food actually comes from! We came home with lots of handmade goodies too. I would thoroughly recommend to anyone, really therapeutic and good for the soul!” – Family camp visitor 2017.

My Shieling

Do you want to milk a cow, build a bothy, or plant a forest? Be an archaeologist, a poet, a weaver? Come outdoors and get stuck in to shieling life with us.

The Shieling Project is an off-grid learning centre based in Glen Strathfarrar, near Beauly in the Highlands of Scotland.  The project is all about outdoor living – from looking after our livestock to making real buildings, from weaving baskets to making burgers from the meat we have raised here. The tradition of the shieling where folk lived outdoors all summer herding the cattle, gives us a window onto the past, but also helps us look forward to a sustainable future.

Am bu mhath leibh bò a bhleoghainn, bothan a thogail neo coille a chur as ùr? Am bu mhath leibh a bhith nur n-arc-eòlaichean, nur bàird, neo nur breabadairean? Thigibh a-mach dhan àraineachd agus feuch dòigh beatha na h-àirighe còmhla rinn!

’S e ionad ionnsachaidh neo-eisimileach a th’ ann am Pròiseact na h-Àirighe, a chaidh a stèidheachadh taobh a-muigh siostaman dealain is goireasan phoblach àbhaisteach. Ionnsachaidh daoine mu dheidhinn a bhith beò air a’ bhlàr a-muigh. Bidh sinn a’ togail bothain. Bidh sinn a’ dèanamh basgaidean, agus burgairean bho mart-fheòil ar cuid sprèidh fhèin. Bha muinntir an àite a’ fuireach a-muigh mar sin, air an làrach againn, airson an samhradh air fad. Seo agaibh sealladh air na laithean a dh’ fhalbh. Tro na cleachdaidhean aca, togaidh sinn beachd air mar as urrainn dhuinne a bhith beò ann an saoghal ùr, seasmhach san àm ri teachd.
