Family Camp

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!

Our 2018 Family Camp is now sold out. In 2019 we will run two camps from Sunday 28th July to Friday 2nd August, and Sunday 4th to Friday 9th August. The cost is £800 per cabin, which can accommodate 6, so thats just over £130 per person for a full week of wonderful activities and food.

“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.

We are having a launch event for our brand new bothies!  Come and visit on Friday 22nd June (10am-12noon) or Saturday 23rd June (10.30am-3pm). See the new accommodation, meet some of the people who the bothies are dedictaed to, and who inspired our project, and celebrate an important milestone with us. Please get in touch to let us know you’re coming.  

Am bu toigh leat bò a’ bhleoghainn, bothan a’ thogail neo coille a chur as ùr? Am bu toigh leat a’ bhith ‘nad arc-eòlaiche, ‘nad bhàrd, no ‘nad breabadair? Thig a-mach dhan àrainneachd agus feuch dòigh beatha na h-àirigh còmhla rinn!

’S e ionad ionnsachaidh neo-eisimeileach a th’ ann am Pròiseact na h-Àirigh, a chaidh a’ stèidheachadh taobh a-muigh siostaman dealain is goireasan phoblach àbhaisteach. Ionnsachaidh sibh mu dheidhinn a’ bhith beò a-muigh – a’ togail bhothain, a’ dèanamh bhasgaidean, neo a’ còcaireachd bhurgairean bho fheòil ar sprèidh fhèin. Bidh sinn a’ toirt sùil air ais chun an àm nuair a bhiodh daoine agus am beathaichean a gluasad gach Samhradh suas chun na h-Àirighean. Tro ionnsachadh seann chleachdaidhean a bh’ aca, gheibh sinn sealladh air mar as urrainn dhuinne a bhith beò ann an saoghal seasmhach san latha againn fhèin agus ‘s an àm ri thighinn.
