Margo van Greta

This Spring Retreat offers you the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the island, celebrating the new in you and around you, and experience the sacredness of nature which often goes beyond words.

Situated on the west coast of Scotland, Iona is a sacred island known as a historic place of pilgrimage. Traigh Bhan is the Findhorn Foundation's retreat house on this magical island.

Traigh Bhan offers the opportunity for quiet contemplation, while the island itself - with its views and spectacular coastal scenery - is ideal for long walks of exploration and contact with nature's beauty.

If you need time to integrate the lessons of a workshop or space to reflect on your own journey and next steps, Traigh Bhan is the perfect place for spiritual rest and renewal. Comfortable and well-equipped, the house has its own peaceful sanctuary for prayer and meditation. Our residential Foundation custodian can guide you in making the most of your time.

If you are making your own travel arrangements, please let the custodian on Iona know what time you will arrive on Saturday at Traigh Bhan. It is best to phone around meal times during the week as the custodian is away from the house meeting the ferry on Saturday morning. Tel: +44 (0)1681 700 383.
