This is Episode 2 in our new Film Series to celebrate the launch of our Women Only Adventures.
Ghillie Basan is an award-winning cook and author living in a very wild spot in the Cairngorms National Park, Scottish Highlands. Growing up in Africa and travelling widely in younger years has given Ghillie’s cooking a taste of the exotic, combined with the best in local Scottish ingredients. Ghillie has written over 40 books and now cooks at events and workshops hosted in her own wilderness retreat here in the Cairngorms.

This new film series celebrates the launch of our range of Women Only adventure holidays. These trips are not about excluding men but hopefully encouraging more women to get out into the wilds and enjoy all the benefits that can give.
