Rocklea: a photo story

To document the location of our Highlands retreat, we travel with photographers Craig McIntosh and Nico Utuk to Rocklea

To celebrate our very special offer to win a week’s retreat for five to the Scottish Highlands, we travelled to Gruinard Bay with talented local photographers and boom saloon friends Craig McIntosh and Nico Utuk. Wandering, laughing and photographing, we wound through the hills of the Scottish Highlands to make our way to Rocklea – the idyllic cottage you could win a week’s stay at in thanks for joining us as a member before July 12th. Documenting the journey, the spectacular scenery and the location, we captured magic of the Highlands and the peace to be found when spending time with friends in a very special part of the world. 

 

The resultant photo story will be released in parts as the film is developed. To enjoy your choice of residency, retreat or holiday at Rocklea – for you and four others – simply join us as a member before July 12th to directly support our work to rewrite the story of dementia and receive entry to the prize draw.
