What we do

Five Senses runs outdoor experiences that help you enjoy finding your way in a wild world. We’re based on a 1300 acre country estate near Alyth, Perthshire. 

Our activities reawaken senses that have been dulled by stress and boredom. 

Remember how you felt when you curled your toes in the sand at the beach? Or smelled freshly cut grass and thought: summer’s here? Your senses were awake, so even the simplest of things were amazing.

Not to mention actually being able to touch a part of the past.”
