Holy Isle


    Holy Isle is an island in Lamlash Bay, just off the Isle of Arran.

    Located in the Firth of Clyde and measuring around 3 km long (1.9 miles) by 1 km wide (0.6 miles), Holy Isle has an ancient spiritual heritage which stretches back to the 6th century.

    A sacred site dedicated to peace and well being, there is a Centre for World Peace and Health at the north of the island where an ongoing course and retreat programme takes place. Overnight guests are welcome to stay at the centre, which has guest house facilities. There is a closed Buddhist retreat at the south of the island.

    Holy Island is divided into several areas, some of which are reserved for birds and animals, others for a native tree planting programme. Day visitors are welcome to enjoy the unspoilt beauty of the island, but are asked to stay on the paths.
