Visit Us

Guests are welcome 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.

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.

 Please read this important information before your stay.

If you are planning to come to us directly from overseas, please refer to the Scottish Government information on the restrictions in place for visitors to the UK.  Have a look here for the different guidelines depending on whether you are entering the UK via England, or Scotland.  Please note that we are unable to meet the needs of individuals needing to quarantine or self-isolate, If this applies to you, then you are welcome to come to us after you have been in isolation elsewhere for ten days.
