Guests are welcomed throughout the year to join our guest weeks which run from Saturday to Saturday. You can spend time working, celebrating and meditating alongside us in a sense of openness, honesty and appreciation.
We invite you to come and join us as island custodians for one or more weeks. Children are always 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.
Erraid is currently in the Scottish Government level 3 tier which means we can continue to stay open in line with guidance for the hospitality sector. However, guests cannot travel to us from areas with restrictions that do not allow travel for non-essential purposes. This currently (from 26th December 2020) includes all mainland Scotland as well as England, Wales, and Northern Ireland. We are only able to offer visits to guests from countries with travel corridors to the United Kingdom who have not travelled from or visited non-travel corridor countries in the previous 10 days. Have a look here for the different guidelines depending on whether you are entering the UK via England, or Scotland. Even when travel restrictions within the UK are eased, we are unable to meet the needs of individuals needing to quarantine / completely self-isolate.
When new guests can reach us, we have reviewed our offer to guests to comply with the need to maintain social distancing . Our invitation, while social distancing restrictions apply, is for you to join us for a one or two week retreat with only a small amount of interaction with the community, with the option of extending your stay and being more fully integrated. If you have visited before or if it is your first time, more information on what to now expect is here.
If you are able and willing to stay for more than two weeks, then we would love to consider you joining us as a long term guest. Long term guests can continue to be in retreat or can join our full Love in Action community rhythms, learning more about how we live as a community, sharing meals with us in our dining room, taking part in activities in the kitchen and other indoor spaces as well as outdoors in the garden, in the wood shed and in maintenance, looking after the chickens …
