Located off the Ayrshire coastline in the Western Isles of Scotland, Holy Isle has an ancient spiritual heritage stretching back to the 6th century. Visitors are welcome all year round.
At the north of the island there is the Centre for World Peace and Health where an ongoing retreat and course programme takes place. Overnight guests are welcome to stay at the centre which has guest house facilities. A closed Buddhist retreat takes place at the south of the island.
Holy Isle is divided into several areas, some of which are reserved for birds and animals, others for our native tree planting programme. We request visitors to stay on the paths and not to bring animals onto the island.
