Past events at Glen Dye: A weekend of music, food and the highlands

Taigh

19th – 21st May 2023

Taigh was an immersive, intimate and fun weekend of folk and alternative music, food and the Highlands. Taigh 2023 took place from 19th – 21st May at Glen Dye in Kincardineshire.

Taigh was an escape for explorers, enthusiasts, families and friends. Listen to great music, have fun, learn new skills, eat great food and immerse yourself in nature. We can’t wait to do it again in 2024, and to see you there.

Taigh? Sounds Interesting, what does it mean?

The word Taigh pronounced ‘t-o-y’ perfectly describes the special feeling you get when you visit Glen Dye.

At its simplest, it means ‘at home’ in Scottish Gaelic, but investigate a little further and you’ll learn that it actually describes a feeling of cosy contentment and well-being achieved through being at home and taking time to enjoy the simple things in life.

World Class Music

Our friends from Roman Candle Promotions curated a world-class lineup of music. There were performances from both well-established musicians and breakthrough acts across the weekend.

Feast and Food Demos

Alongside the music, there was also a feast by the Ethicurean in the Glen Dye Woodshed and food demos by Xanthe Gladstone and Adam Williams next to the River Dye. Guests enjoyed amazing food in truly spectacular locations.

Wellness in the Wilderness

There were also guided walks and river swimming sessions. Pip and Stu Wright lead highland bushcraft workshops. There was yoga with Naomi Macintosh, massage from Catriona McIntosh and much more. All of these are what you should always expect from an event at Glen Dye – or as part of any stay here as a bespoke experience.

Need a place to stay?

We have a handful of perfect holiday cottages and a contemporary, upmarket B&B called The Coach House.

Glen Dye is a private estate of around 15,000 acres and our cabins and cottages sit slap bang at its centre, surrounded by wilderness forest and moorland on the banks of the River Dye. The location is fabled; watched over by the massive granite tor of Clachnaben and at the northern end of the Cairo o Mount mountain pass. This is where the Howe of the Mearns finally gives in to the Highland boundary fault; Wild, beautiful and very, very quiet.
