This weekend we’ve left hot and busy London for a weekend escape at The Hideaway Experience in the Scottish Highlands.
Located just 15 minutes outside the up and coming arts hub of Dundee (the soon to be opened V&A is definitely setting the scene), we’re taking some time out to work our the Scottish feature for the next edition of The Wonderful World of Dance magazine.
I’m loving the endless views of green rolling hills, the seclusion of the cabin, the modern interiors and the full glass windows that frame the gorgeous Scottish landscape.
On arrival to the working farm, I was touched to meet the owner Jenny and her lovely black dog. We were greeted with the sounds of birds, cows and of course happy barking!
The gorgeous cabin is set secluded from the farmhouse and the other four cabins – although they are more like mini houses with generous lounge, huge bedroom and enormous bathroom (with sauna!).
Set on the deck is a hot tub, a hammock, outdoor dinning and bbq – all of which we indulged as we soaked up the sun after exploring the local area.
It was great to take some time out to prepare questions for interview with Scottish Ballet principal dancer Sophie Martin and to research Scottish Dance Theatre. Being up in Scotland gives me a more connected perspective with the regions dance companies.
It’s so important that dance is showcased and supported in the regions not just outside the UK’s major cities, but across regions throughout the world. Dance should be accessible everywhere, to everyone!
If you’re looking for a treat, I would definitely recommend The Hideaway Experience for a weekend escape in a little slice of Scottish heaven!
