Though she recently moved to the city, Katie Maciver is always looking for ways to incorporate her island heritage into her daily life.
Originally from the Isle of Lewis, Katie values time spent outdoors in nature and incorporates slow living into her busy schedule when she can.
She shared her top three favourite places that help her connect to the great outdoors.
Outfield Farm Cabins
The cosy king beds, sheepskin armchairs and wood burners at Outfield Farm Cabins will make you feel like you’re in the Alps. There’s even a wood fired Swedish Hikki tub to enjoy the surrounding nature from if you can brave the elements.
This almost off-grid experience is the perfect way to embrace a slower way of living and just a 30-minute drive from Perth in Abernyte.
The Lookout Bothy
The Lookout Bothy is located in Rubha Hunish, the northernmost point on the Isle of Skye. Whether you’re camping overnight or just taking a snack break on your hike, the Lookout Bothy is a welcome shelter from the Scottish weather.
This is a great spot to whale watch while enjoying a flask of something hot.
The Cairngorm Reindeer Herd
Visiting the Cairngorm Reindeer Herd at Glenmore is one of my favourite Scottish experiences that I always recommend, whether you’re a local or visiting. On the hill trip you walk in amongst Britain’s only free-ranging reindeer herd whilst learning all about them from the herders. You even get the opportunity to hand feed them.
