*Within the grounds is a large hot tub with stunning views across the Firth Of Forth, the warm relaxing water massage will stimulate your body to release endorphins, increasing blood circulation speeding up recovery and repair. A soothing little haven to help you slow down, tune in and let go. You are very welcome to venture out to the hot tub in the evenings for a calming soak and a bit of stargazing! We are also encouraging wild sea swimming on the retreat, come and embrace the chance to step out of your comfort zone in a supported environment and take a dip in the sea! If you didn’t already know, sea swimming is incredibly good for your health! Apart from the sea being packed full of health promoting minerals like sodium, magnesium and calcium, the cold water releases hormones such as endorphins, adrenaline and cortisol which lifts your mood and brings a sense of calm and serenity to your being. Get the Glow! (Sea Swimming optional!).
