Whats included in this collaboration with the Melvich Hotel

Accomodation- 3 nights stay right above the beach in the cosy Melvich hotel with breakfast each morning, 1 lunch and 2 Dinners.

All surf and yoga equipment provided (optional to bring your own kit)

This rough plan is totally dependent on weather and waves. We will chat about the final plan the night before so we can make the most of the conditions we get thrown at us!!

Friday- Arrive at any time.

Meet at Thurso harbour in the afternoon (the Surfing Hub in Scotland). In Winter the waters here light up with world class waves. We will brief over the exciting plans for the few days to come and chat about the wave conditions. Time and wave dependant, we might even get a quick surf, swim or walk in before dinner.
(If you arrive later then we will arrange to just meet you at the hotel.)
We will then head out to Melvich hotel and get settled in with a night of socialising and eat the best wood fired pizza in the North!


Start the day with a morning surf at one of the best spots in the UK, followed by beach view yoga. We will then head along the coast to the beautiful village called Bettyhill where we will have a freshly made picnic for lunch. For the afternoon there are options to either have some free time to explore the area yourself or come join us and we'll take you to some of our favourite lesser known spots and even have the option to go pier or waterfall jumping.
Later in the afternoon we will guide you on the walk either up castle Varrich or around Torrisdale sands before filling our bellies at one of the local restaurants in Tongue. To Finish the night how about an outdoor projected surf movie?- Don't worry, we have a back up plan if the weather doesn't cooperate.


Again we will start the day with some yoga to clear the mind before exploring more of the wild North coast. We will chase the surf along the beautiful points with crystal clear waters while we tell quirky local tales. Our experienced local coaches will improve your surfing to the next level- filming all the good times for keepsake memories. Again there will be optional free time or activities such as coming sand dune bodyboarding with us. The store cafe will provide a mega BBQ for the evening- with fresh seafood- while we kick back with a bonfire on the beach.


After a busy couple of days we will wake up with some yoga, and if your still full of energy go a wee surf too. Sadly then the weekend is over:(
Be sure to be filled with lots of cake and hot drinks inbetween our adventures.
If the weather is abit stormy we will arrange a private hire- on us- for the group to enjoy the hot tub and sauna!
Every room will be equipped with a goodie bag which includes a 'welcome pack'. This is filled with information on our favourite walks in the area and cool stories. Gin and snacks will also be included- What more could you want!?


'Absolutly brilliant weekend. Energetic but also very relaxing. Well organised with plenty of additional activities in the local area, food and accomodation were amazing. As always, Iona and Finn were super stoked to get everyone out catching as many waves as possible (even with a slightly uncooperative weather forecast!) and I felt my surfing has progressed further, I even have a new favourite place to go surfing. Thanks guys!'
