Your cabin or lodge has all the utensils you need to make delicious feasts, but if you’d rather leave the cooking to someone else we have a range of yummy wholesome meals ready to go. Pop them in the oven, pour a glass of wine and sit back.
Tuck into the tastiest chicken and ham pie, or enjoy a creamy coconut curry. There’s nothing like nourishing soup, comforting lasagne or tasty risotto after a day out on the trail.
Our food is cooked by Ruby, a Leith’s-trained chef, from her own kitchen. The finest food is made with ethical as well as seriously special ingredients - British wherever possible, sustainable-certified fish and free-range, RSPCA-approved meat. All dishes are cooked in very small batches, the freezer preserves our meals the natural way, so we’re never left with any food waste. Being responsible and making sure our footprint is as small as possible really matters. So our food is served in biodegradable cardboard trays that happily go from freezer to oven to recycling.
If you would like to order any of our wonderful pre-cooked dishes in advance, let us know and we'll have them ready for you when you arrive.
