“I wanted to create a small, bespoke gathering of creatives and photographers in one of the most beautiful locations in the UK at the height of the autumn colours. I’ve created an experience that blends inspirational talks with trips to incredible locations with great leaders, small, bespoke masterclasses, all surrounded by nature. It’s an opportunity to share an experience with other creatives who have a passion for the outdoors” Margaret Soraya 

The festival is based at Polmaily House, in a secluded area surrounded by woodlands. Polmaily is very close to Loch Ness and the glens and natural wilderness of the area such as Glen Affric.
