WellBeing

For some time now GPs have been prescribing exercise and connection with the natural world as being beneficial to body and mind.

What a fantastic few days with a wonderful group of people who all brought their love of adventure and a wish to do something different, to step out of their comfort zones and be part of the islands’ communities. I feel very lucky to be able to welcome people to Mull and Iona and to have the support from a dream team of local businesses who all contribute to make these retreats what they are. #visitmullandiona #wildaboutargyll #retreat #innerhebrides #wildswimming #openwater #cuiseag #islandlife #islandcommunity #sustainabletravelling #seaswimming #fingalscave #coldwaterswimming #seaswimming #scotland #swimsecure #kitbrix

Absolutely loved my morning with @thefauldmull. On a Hebridean Farm Hike, host Karen shows you what it’s like to be a hill farmer in the Scottish Hebrides and how the different flora and fauna thrive here. Karen’s love of the land and the animals is such a joy and the views from the top of Meadow Ridge are probably the best I’ve seen yet.  #hebrideanfarmhikes #bogcotton #highlandpony #shetlandsheep #hillfarming #dogvioletsinspring #wildflowers #spring #isleofmull #scottishhighlands
Springtime has always been my favourite season. The arrival of the puffins on Lunga is a highlight and privilege to see. 

On our May Guided Swim Trek, after a swim in Fingals Cave, we get to have lunch with these busy little guys. #spring #springtime #puffins #visitmullandiona #wildaboutargyll #treshnishisles #lunga #staffa #fingalscave #caveswimming #seaswimming #outdoorswimming #turusmara #wildswimmers #wildadventures #wildswimming #retreats #swimretreats #innerhebrides #coldwaterswimming #outdoorswimming #wellbeing #bluetherapy #wildlife
