Friday- Arrive at any time.

Arrive at the Hotel when you can- check in is usually from 3pm. 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.
We will get settled in with a night of socialising and eat the best wood fired pizza in the North!

Saturday-

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.

Sunday-

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.

Monday-

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!?

 
 
 

Just returned from a truly epic SWELL weekend with Iona and Finn!! Travelled alone with only a couple of surf lessons under my belt - no need to have been anxious- Iona and Finn are soo patient and experienced, fun and inspiring!! We were amazingly lucky with the weather we showcased this beautiful part of Scotland at its best. The hotel- room, staff and food were exceptional and more than I expected. The beach’s and tuition were unreal and every single person improved during the course of the weekend. I feel very lucky to have been on this trip as I feel sure they will be booked out in years to come- so much so I almost didn’t want to write this review! It was also a pleasure to watch Iona and Finn surf- what a talented couple and so great to see a young team work passionately to promote surfing and their part of the world. I will be back for sure!!!
