Event Details

Join the Wirdsmit Young Writers Group in this lovely hide nestled in the hillside to learn of the wildlife around it, and how Bessie Skea (an Orcadian writer) loved to explore and capture her love of her natural surroundings in her writings.

Add to that Anne Bignall's beautiful mural featuring the nature and seasonal changes of this hidden gem, and you are sure to find much inspiration.

All will be guided at their own pace in a gentle journey that celebrates each individual’s creative responses.

Suitable for ages 10-14. Children may be left unaccompanied during the workshop once registered (for those not already part of the Wirdsmit group). Accompanying adults are welcome to stay and enjoy the nature reserve and hide too.

For directions to Cottascarth visit The hide is about 600 m from the car park, which includes one accessible parking space. Two thirds of the track is gravel with the final section grass, which is less even and can be muddy following wet weather. The interior of the hide is wheelchair accessible.
