Visit Us

Guests are welcome throughout the year to join our ‘guest weeks’ which run from Saturday to Saturday. The guest weeks have an integrity, running this way, for several reasons:

  • The tour of the street on Saturday before dinner.
  • The introduction circle after dinner on Saturday evening.
  • The start of the week meditation on Sunday morning.
  • The island walk on Sunday afternoon.
  • Morning sharing circle during the Love in Action weekdays.

You can spend time working, sharing and meditating alongside us in the spirit of love, openness, honesty and respect.

We invite you to come and join us as island custodians for one or more weeks.

Children are welcome, they usually love the adventure and freedom of the island. Participation in any of our weeks does not require you to have completed a Findhorn Foundation Experience Week.

Please be aware that well behaved dogs are very welcome on Erraid so long as all poop is picked up and disposed of immediately and they remain on a lead when outside of the comminity. There are free roaming sheep and cows on the island so no chasing of livestock. Thank You for your understanding.

As a guest you participate in our weekly rhythms, joining us for meditations, regular meetings, eating communally with us and, if you come as a Love in Action guest, helping with our work as Love in Action.  Scroll down to find available dates to visit. Please find information about our prices and bookings here and details about how to get to Erraid here.

If you would like to visit with a group or host a workshop, please get in touch through erraid@live.co.uk.
