Wool Traditions of Santa Fe

November 6-12, 2018

 

Santa Fe, New Mexico is celebrated as a singular – even somewhat exotic – place to visit. Its unique feel is the result of hundreds of years of contact, conflict and cooperation between resident Native American, Spanish colonial and Anglo-American cultures. It’s a town unlike any other in the United States. Did you know that Santa Fe

  • is the oldest capital city in the United States?
  • is located at the southernmost tip of the great Rocky Mountains?
  • is affectionately referred to by local residents as “The City Different”?

Join us for an exploration of Santa Fe’s art, landscape and cultural traditions —  with a special emphasis on wool and fiber! We’ll enjoy time in downtown, on world famous Canyon Road, at celebrated museums, out in the high desert landscape, and in nearby, historic villages. We’ll also explore northern New Mexico’s knitting, weaving, wool growing, dye and textile production. Participants will get the chance to soak in Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs’ legendary waters. Plenty of free time is included so you can shop, explore additional venues of interest, take advantage of our wonderful hotel spa, take a hike, or visit Santa Fe’s amazing and numerous art establishments. We’ve pulled out all the stops on this tour. It’s going to be a journey to remember!

Wool and Whisky Tour – September 4-13 2018

 

Rowan Tree Travel Logo_ICONcircle-01

Wool & Whisky

September 4-13 2018

Day By Day Itinerary:

Wednesday, September 5 – Welcome to Scotland!

The group will gather at the airport and then head over for lunch at The Mill at New Lanark, followed by a tour of this amazing UNESCO World Heritage Site with a fascinating social history.  There will also be plenty of time to let loose in their amazing gift shop to purchase the yarn they spin there today.  When we are done, we will make our way to The Oak Tree Inn in Balmaha on the Bonnie, Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond!

Thursday, September 6 – Wool and Whisky, as promised!

Today we will have a few scenic stops as we head through the Highlands and into Speyside to visit Knockando Woolen Mill – an historic local mill weaving tartan cloth as well as spinning their own line of wool for handknitting.  We will have lunch on our own in the café there before our tour of the mill.  Afterwards, we will head to Cardhu Distillery for a tour and tasting.  Cardhu just happens to be the only distillery started by a woman and it produces some very nice whisky indeed!  We will overnight in nearby Grantown-on-Spey.

Friday, September 7 – Highlands

Back through the Highlands we go, stopping at the Highland Folk Museum, an outdoor living history museum that is like taking a stroll back in time.  Along the way, there are buildings from many stages of Scottish Highland history, ending with a recreated turf and thatch village from the 1700s that was used as a filming location in the popular Outlander series.  After lunch in the café on our own, we will head south to Pitlochry in time to explore the picturesque town before retiring to our country house hotel for dinner together.

Saturday, September 8 – The Pitlochry Highland Games

Join the locals today in attending The Pitlochry Highland Games, which has been hosting competitors and enthralling visitors since 1852.  There will be heavy athletics such as caber tossing, piping competitions, Highland Dancing competitions, and even tug-of-war!  Back to the Pine Trees Hotel tonight, but feel free to walk down into town to dine at a pub with live music…

Sunday, September 9 – The Perth Festival of Yarn!

A relatively new yarn festival that is getting bigger every year, with 70 vendors last year!  This day will be flexible based on participant interest – attend a workshop, or visit a nearby castle, the choice is yours…

After being thoroughly yarned out, we will travel to St Andrews for our next two nights.

Monday, September 10 – St Andrews

Famous as the home of golf as well as for its ancient university, St Andrews has a lot to explore.  Not only are there lots of shops and cafes in this small seaside city, but the castle ruins have tunnels to scamper through and if you are up for a climb, there are few views that can rival the one from the top of St. Rule’s Tower at the Cathedral.

In the morning we will take a short drive to Anstruther, where we will have a tour of the Scottish Fisheries Museum and view their gansey collection before visiting a very unique farm with heritage breed sheep, as well as alpacas and guanacos!  We will return to The Ardgowan Hotel in St Andrews with time to explore the town.

Tuesday, September 11 – Gansey Workshop with Di Gilpin and on to Edinburgh!

This morning we will have a workshop on Gansey patterns with Di Gilpin, who loves to incorporate the traditional patterns in her striking modern designs.  After lunch, we will head to Edinburgh for our yarn crawl of Edinburgh’s Independent Yarn Stores specializing in British yarns.  We will check into the Parliament House Hotel, heading out for a brief orientation of Edinburgh before wrapping up our day with afternoon tea with beautiful views of Edinburgh Castle.

Wednesday, September 12 – Edinburgh

We will start our day with a walking tour that will focus on Edinburgh’s Royal History.  The tour will take in the lower half of The Royal Mile and end at Holyrood Palace, still used by the Royal Family when they visit Scotland.  You will have the opportunity to tour it if you wish during your free time.  Mid-afternoon, we will meet at The National Museum of Scotland for a fiber tour, and then we will gather together for a farewell dinner near our hotel.

June 9-14, 2018

This retreat is designed for knitters who enjoy a more relaxed pace on their holidays, with plenty of time to get to know an area.  We will be traveling to the Scottish Borders where we will spend five nights at Sir Walter Scott’s Baronial Manor Home, Abbotsford.  From there, we will make short excursions into the surrounding countryside, visiting other stately homes, castles and romantic abbey ruins.

There is no day by day itinerary for this retreat as it’s relaxed pace and optional excursions will enable us to play things by ear to maximize the weather and the interests of the group. Possible outings include the nearby town of Melrose and it’s beautiful abbey ruin, Floors Castle in Kelso, The Border Mill – producers of alpaca yarns for several local fiber artists, and Traquair House, an historic home with a fascinating story, a world famous needlepoint collection, an award winning brewery, and a hedge maze!  Walks along the River Tweed and over the Eildon Hills are also possibilities, and may be accompanied by alpacas!

Women’s Walking Retreat in The Hebrides – Full

Rowan Tree Travel Logo_ICONcircle-01

Walking Tour of the Hebrides

June 15-25 2018

Day By Day Itinerary:

June 15  – Arrival

After arriving at Glasgow Airport, the group will be brought to The Bonnie, Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond to complete our journey to The Oak Tree Inn via Water Taxi.  On the way you will have time to explore the lovely conservation village of Luss before being dropped off at The Oak Tree Inn in Balmaha where your bags will be waiting for you.

June 16 – The Road to Oban

The town of Inverary and Kilchurn Castle will make for some interesting stops along the way to the Ferry from Oban to Castlebay on the Island of Barra. For our two nights in Barra, the group will be split between a small hotel and a B&B.

June 17 –

We will spend today exploring the small island of Barra, perhaps with a walk or sea kayaking as well as visiting the castle that Castlebay is named for.  Kisimul Castle is the seat of the chief of Clan Macneil, who settled in Barra in the 11th century. Kisimul is known as the ‘Castle in the Sea’ due to its location on a rock in the bay, and can be accessed by taking a five minute boat trip from Castle Bay.

June 18 –

In the morning we will board the short ferry to the Isle of Eriskay where we can take a morning hike just off the ferry from Barra. Watch for the famous Eriskay Ponies! Walk along the beach or take the optional hill route for a view with 330 ft ascent.  After lunch at the SS Politician pub of Whisky Galore! Fame, we will continue on to the Island of South Uist for another walk along a beach with an archaeological site to explore before we stop in for tea at the Kildronan Museum and Craft Centre.  Then it’s on to North Uist and the town of Lochmaddy, where we will check into our rooms at the lovely Harmersay House.

June 19 –

The main item on today’s agenda is a visit to The Birlinn Yarn Company on the Isle of Berneray to meet their seafaring sheep!  The group will rotate between a lovely guided walk on the machair amidst the wildflowers and a cruise through the local bay dotted with sheep covered islands with a marine biologist guide.  In the afternoon we will visit some local artisan studios on our way back to Lochmaddy.

June 20 –

The late morning ferry to Harris will get us in port just in time for fish and chips at the Harbor before we decide on our walk for the day.  After our walk, we will find refreshment at a nearby Art Gallery Café before continuing to the luxurious Kirklea Suites in Tarbert.

June 21 –

The nearby Isle of Scalpay offers a walk to a lighthouse as well as several artisans and a small café.  We will make a day of it today, and will likely use the local bus service’s convenient schedule today.

June 22 –

Over the rugged hills of Harris to Lewis we go today, arriving mid morning for a guided walk of the small island of Great Bernera and it’s nature reserve before heading to the famous Calanais Standing Stones which will transport you back in time!  Or so it will feel when we check into our final accommodations in the Outer Hebrides – the Blackhouse Village of Gearrannan.  Never fear, we will sleep on real mattresses in our ancient home, but it will be in bunkhouse accommodations perched on the edge of the seashore.

June 23 –

From our Blackhouse village, we will walk to the nearby town of Carloway for a tour of one of the mills that has been making Harris Tweed for generations.  Then our day is our own to walk as far along the shoreline path as we like with a picnic lunch to share.

June 24 –

From ancient housing to modern flight – we will return to Glasgow today by plane, with city center accommodation at The Carlton George Hotel for a little hustle and bustle to contrast with our serene tour of the Outer Hebs.

June 25 –Departure

Travel Tips to Inspire Your Next Adventure

View the HTML Version
 
Scottish Barge Cruises, Ancient Irish Celebrations, Canyoneering and the land of Hobbits!

View this email in your browser (https://us3.campaign-archive.com/?e=[UNIQID]&u=1a0b7ab8d06dbdfb089f31eac&id=d0a700651a)

Village Spotlight
Doolin, in County Clare, Ireland, makes a wonderful spot to take in some traditional Irish Music. With 4 pubs offering nightly music sessions all summer long, you don’t have to worry about being there on the right night! Close to the s Cliffs of Moher and the Burren, there’s no shortage of things to do during the day either.
Canyoneering?
Combining cliff diving, white water swimming, rappelling, and shooting down natural water slides, Canyoneering is the latest adventure craze. Offered in locations all around the world from Scotland to New Zealand to the Caribbean, this is a great way to get up close and personal with the local landscape! Gorge Walking is a more family oriented alternative on an easier course. On the coast, look for Coasteering, which combines cliff diving, exploring coastal caves, and whirlpools. All of these activities are run by licensed guides who provide you with wetsuits, flotation devices and helmets.
Outlander Tours
Fans of the Outlander Series, take note! There are so many others who share your guilty pleasure, there are now tours that allow you to follow in Jamie and Claire’s footsteps! Visit Standing Stones, Fraser Castle, and Culloden Battlefield to connect with your favorite characters! With the STARZ television series premiering and the 8th book due out in March, 2014 is the year to do it! Inquire here (mailto:heather@rowantreetravel.com?subject=Outlander%20Tours) .
Phone Smarts
Smart phones are now a very useful tool in getting the customer service you deserve! Before you drive your rental car off the lot, be sure to take pictures of any dent or scratch you see. If there is a dispute when you return the car, you can use your photos as proof. If you find that your hotel room is dirty or not as advertised, snapping a few pictures will often get you moved to a better room. The threat of a bad review on social media packs a big punch these days!

Take it Slow…
Rather than rushing from landmark to landmark, be sure to schedule time on your vacation to enjoy the outdoors, stop to talk with locals, and have enough time to spontaneously stop and investigate something that catches your eye! This is how the real travel memories are made!

Barge Cruises of Great Glen, Scotland
Luxurious travel or adventurous exploration? There are barges for either travel style, so the choice is yours! Both barges cruise from Inverness to Fort William through Loch Ness and the Caledonian Canal, taking stops along the way for day trips. One offers tours of distilleries, battlefields and castles along the way, the other allows you to take more active excursions by cycle, canoe or kayak, to name a few! Whichever you choose, the scenery will be stunning from the deck of your barge as you relax at the end of the day. 4 – 7 day cruises available. Contact Heather at Rowan Tree Travel (mailto:heather@rowantreetravel.com?subject=Great%20Glen%20Barge%20Cruise) for more information.
Ancient Ireland
Some of Ireland’s most treasured sites far predate the castle ruins that dot the verdant landscape. Visiting the ancient passage tombs of Newgrange and Knowth transports you all the way back to the Neolithic Age, before the Giza pyramids and Stonehenge! If you enter the annual lottery and are lucky enough to win, you can stand in the tomb during the winter solstice at sunrise and watch the dawning light illuminate the chamber! Enter the 2014 lottery here (http://www.heritageireland.ie/en/media/Winter%20Solstice%20Lottery%202014.pdf) .
A Scottish Tour Powered By – You!
Getting around Scotland has never been easier! With picturesque walking trails of all levels that link quaint villages with welcoming Pubs and B&Bs, tour companies that will either guide you or just provide you with routes and luggage transport, and an extensive rail system, why rent a car? This goes for cycling as well – BritRail doesn’t even charge for carrying bicycles, although reservations are recommended. Inquire here (mailto:heather@rowantreetravel.com?subject=Walking%20and%20Cycling%20Tours) .
Begin Your Own Epic Journey
Many tour operators are offering special promotions for fans of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. You can visit the Hobbiton set, visit the Weta Cave and come face to face with some of the characters they designed, and enjoy tours to many of the stunning film locations! Not to mention New Zealand’s many other wonders!

At Rowan Tree Travel, I believe that small and local is the best way to travel – I always search for locally owned providers which help to support their local economies.
