The perfect island getaway – suitable for beginners

Join us for our first ever retreat on the Isle of Arran, a short journey from Glasgow.

Set in stunning scenery, as soon as you step on the boat you can begin to relax and unwind.

About the Retreat

Everyone wants to be happy and to have good relationships with others and the best way to fulfil these wishes is to train in loving kindness. We all have some experience of love, but we may not realise how easy it is to cultivate and grow pure love in our hearts through meditation.

During this retreat we will be guided to develop authentic and powerful love for others in meditation.

Between meditations you can enjoy walking in the hills or by the shore, taking in the views as you continue your contemplations.

Then you can return home refreshed, recharged and with new methods to solve your daily problems, improve your relationships and find inner peace.

Schedule and travel

The retreat starts with the evening meal and an introduction at 7.30pm on Friday and finishes with lunch on Sunday.

For those using public transport there is a bus that meets the ferry to Lamlash Hospital bus stop.


If you plan to bring your car across on the ferry then you will need to book your ferry journey in advance which you can do via www.calmac.co.uk

If you plan to come across without a vehicle then there is no need to book your ferry in advance you would just turn up and pay for your ferry ticket on the day.

The retreat finishes at lunchtime on the Sunday. We plan to organise a group walk on the Sunday afternoon so if you like the sound of this and don’t need to get back early then we recommend catching the 4.40pm ferry back on Sunday afternoon.

Please note the accommodation prices include the retreat, food and refreshments from Friday night until Sunday lunchtime.
