Our home for the retreat is Glebe Barn which is a converted 19th-century building which offers wonderful views across the harbor over to the Scottish mainland. It’s perfectly situated towards the middle of the island - a great location for our trips to visit local sites and within one mile of the shop, craft center, cafe and restaurant which can all be found at the pier.
The kitchen, dining room, gathering room & library and sunroom are all on the ground floor. An entrance hall offers storage for all coats and walking boots. There is also a laundry room with washer and dryer, and a shower room (with toilet) and another toilet.
The Glebe Barn is a hostel, not hotel, so there in minimum options for unpacking and storing your things. If your in a bunk room you will have a spare bed to store your belongings on as well as a hanging shoe rack type storage. Accomidation is based on sharing a room with other women with the option of one single room available for a small supplement.
