This magnificent healing retreat will take place in the picturesque Highlands of Scotland, just a few miles outside Inverness on the Firth of Moray.
Step inside the ancient walls of Teaninich Castle and you'll find yourself in a luxurious castle with a fascinating past.
A fortress fit for a king or queen, the castle features beautiful expansive lawn looking over the Firth of Moray and the Black Isle, a butler to greet you, fine dining with a chef and 11 beautifully appointed bedrooms (some with four-poster beds, naturally).
A little history . . . There was a defensive structure at Teaninich since the Iron Age or Early Medieval period. It was labelled in the Scott’s Gaelic as Cnoc a’Chaistell meaning Castle Hill. This enclosed area was approximately 32 by 29 meters, with defensive banks and ditches as well as postholes and pits. Those structures are no longer visible.
Archival records show that the Munros were in possession of Teaninich from at least the 1600s. In the 16th century the lands in which Teaninich Castle are located were known as Fyrish. In 1588 King James the 6th of Scotland (James I of England) granted the lower quarter of Fyrish lands to a Hugh Munro (1565-1593, 1st of Teaninich). Records show that his grandson, Hugh Munro (1625-1701, 4th of Teaninich) expanded the family estate.
Hugh the 4th of Teaninich, his grandson (Hugh Munro, 5th of Teaninich) and his great grandson (Royal Navy Captain James Munro, 1719-1788) were in possession of Teaninich during the Jacobite uprisings.
There is a lintel in the back of the castle dated 1734 and Teaninich Castle appears in a military survey of Scotland map dated 1750. Because the Munros fought on the side of King George II in the Jacobite uprisings which ended in 1746, their estates were not forfeited and the Munro ownership continued.
It is said that the writer Frances Hodgson Burnett had visited Teaninich Castle and that the mysterious walled garden at Teaninich may have helped inspire her book the “Secret garden”.
Each one-of-a-kind room is luxuriously decorated with rich Scottish fabrics and period furniture, worthy of a stay from a royal visitor.
Daily meditation and healing sessions will be offered in a way to relax, stimulate, and help guests grow in their own personal practice. We will also be offering Women’s Circles for shared wisdom, laughter and teachings.
