garden dunan estateDoing absolutely nothing

This under rated activity is highly recommended. For far too many of our over stressed fellow citizens, holidays have become a competitive event. He , who bags the most munros , hikes the most miles or catches the most fish is hailed as a winner , even as he collapses at his desk , more in need of a holiday than before he left. May we suggest a selection of the books you’ve been meaning to read for years, a comfortable chair and our sheltered walled garden as an alternative. A week of pure Highland air, some moderate exercise and hours of doing absolutely nothing will have even the most jaded returning home truly refreshed and ready to take up the yoke once more.
