Erraid is a small Hebridean island in Scotland, in view of Iona. The island is one square mile in size and our small community lives and works on the land. We live in old light house keepers’ cottages, which we share with our guests. Life on Erraid seems pretty much like it must have been in the 1870s when the houses were established. We work in the gardens, heat the cottages and our water with woodburning stoves, drink rain water and live a life very close to the elements. What we are doing on a day to day basis is often determined by the sea, the tides, the moon and the wind. One of our main purposes on the island is to hold guests in the island’s ancient energy and allow them to experience and explore its magnificent landscape and wildlife, our unique lifestyle and community life. Guests come throughout the year for a week or even months to live with us and join in our activities: cooking, chopping wood, working in the gardens, helping with the animals, making candles, meditating and singing sacred songs in our beautiful sanctuary and celebrating the turning of the seasons in our Celtic Festival weeks. Please visit our website for more information.
