The food here is a tasty, locally sourced, organic fare. The vegetables, salads, herbs and berries are all grown in Alladales aquaponic 1.5 acre garden. We love that the electricity needed to power the greenhouses is produced by a hydro-generator, making it a zero waste and zero emissions ethical food production scheme. The venison is wild and ethically culled whilst regional suppliers offer fresh and wild caught seafood and local trout. Menus are tailored to your tastes by chef Natasha Buttigieg. She will prepare three lovely, homely meals a day during the whole of your stay which will be served in the dining room.
Alladale Wilderness Reserve’s
Alladale Wilderness Reserve is a 23,000 acre estate deep in the Scottish Highlands whose mission is to restore the balance of nature. A stay here directly contributes to the work of their charity partner The European Nature Trust which supports wildlife and conservation projects cross Europe. We love its strong stance on sustainability and how it highly values its connection with local produce, suppliers, communities, people and businesses. From sourcing all its’ ingredients from their own vegetable garden or local suppliers to boosting local employment and supporting local attractions. Alongside this the Alladale team works hard to rewild this unique part of the Highlands to its former glory, reintroducing original plant and wildlife species. Over the last 15 years, amongst numerous projects, they have planted almost 1 million trees, restored damaged peatlands, brought back the red squirrel, introduced a Scottish wildcat enclosure as part of a captive breeding project in partnership with the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland and hosted thousands of local teenagers for week-long outdoor school trip.
