Retreat Weeks

During a Retreat Week you can join in with community life as much as you wish. It is a self led retreat as we are a working community and you can follow some of the structure of the Love In Action Week or decide to only join in for the morning meetings, orientation walk on Sunday, meals and social activities etc. We will put you on our KP-rota (Kitchen Party to wash up dishes) for 1 or 2 shifts, and at the end of your stay we invite you to put some love back in your cottage by cleaning it and leaving it as you found it. If staying for two weeks there’s a community clean on Saturday morning also.

You will share a house with one of the members of our community, or other Retreat or Love in Action guests but we will not ask you to share a bedroom; although do be aware that our side bedrooms link together so you may have to walk through another guests room.

You will have plenty of time to explore, take a dip in the sea, meditate & read in your house from our extensive library, both spiritual and fiction, in front of a cosy fire and to reflect and take space for yourself.  And you’ll have the option of joining in our community Love in Action activities, when you wish.

Wednesdays are a rest day in the community. We can sometimes take you  to  Fionnphort, (depending upon available drivers and/or vehicles) where you can catch the ferry across to the Isle of Iona to explore its mystical beaches and the ancient abbey.

Cleaning your cottage

At the end of your stay, on Friday morning, we ask you to put Love back in your cottage to leave it ready for our new guests.

Community Clean

Saturday morning, for all in the community, is Community Clean, when Everyone takes part in cleaning the communal areas ready for the new guests and the week ahead. If you are staying for longer than one week, this is also a responsability for Retreat guests.

Maximum stay on Retreat is two weeks.

We are a fully functioning, intentional community and need our guests to take part in the day to day necessities of community life be able to flourish and function. If you want to stay longer than two weeks on Erraid, then you can transfer to becoming a Love in action guest and also benefit from a lower price. (See prices page) .

“These two weeks have been extremely important and meaningful to me.  I could say I remembered the rhythm of my own being / soul for the first time in over twenty years.”   Guest after two weeks of retreat, November 2020
