The tiny Hebridean island of Erraid has been home to a small group of members of the Findhorn Foundation for over 40 years. Living life on a remote Scottish island brings us to the forefront of experiencing nature at its rawest, which allows us to hold a deeper connection to the land, the ocean, the weather and the spirit that encompasses us all. Our vision for our community and the island is to live in as eco-friendly and sustainable way as is possible whilst practising our spiritual values and living consciously.
We seek to follow and inspire a spiritual approach to life by connecting people to nature, to their inner wisdom and by making work a sacred act which we call Love in Action.
Our community is open to guests and you are welcome to join our small family for a week or more. Many people have been called to Erraid to engage in community/alternative living, to be part of learning how to live more sustainably and to live off the land and sea, whilst experiencing its outstanding stillness and beauty.
If a retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life sounds more appealing, Erraid can be the perfect setting for this. If you are looking for a new direction in your life we will give you the space and time to reflect amidst the island’s raw beauty. A retreat is also perfect for a family eco-holiday, as children of all ages love the freedom and the sense of adventure here.
