Recently we have been updating our stories and wanted to share with you the story of Delliefure Woodland Natural Burial in Cairngorms National Park and what makes it special...
We opened this natural burial in 2006 because we wanted to offer a place surrounded by the beauty of the countryside where you can walk, bring the dogs, bring the family and remember those who were special in unhurried and peaceful surroundings. It is a place that you can honour those we love because it’s something they would have loved, and organise the day exactly as you’d like it with the freedom and time to be yourselves completely.
The long meandering meadow and woodland at Delliefure make it peaceful, natural place. The natural burial is located within Cairngorms National Park with views that look across the beautiful countryside and River Spey. Within the burial ground, you may see osprey flying above, while golden eagles hunt and otters swim in the river. The river is also famous for its salmon and sea trout, and occasionally you may see a glimpse of red and roe deer stalking the woodlands. It is a place that is closer to nature, offering natural green burials that supports our environment and local woodland.
If you wish to have a memorial you can, we offer simple locally sourced, natural memorials that remember the people we love, but which work with nature, allowing the woodland to remain unspoilt, and the meadow to remain natural.
If you would like to come and visit the burial ground at Delliefure visitors are always welcome and feel free to bring the dogs and enjoy the woodland trail or give us a call if you want to find out more. We love being at the natural burial because it is such a special place but as one of our families said, ‘We like the idea of being in natural surroundings, returning to nature in an area we love’.
