Iona Accommodation


Both The College of the Holy Spirit on Cumbrae, and Bishop's House on Iona are very special places in very special settings. Cumbrae is a small island off the town of Largs on the West Coast of Scotland and Iona is a small island accessible via Mull from the town of Oban. Both are easy to reach.

Everyone is welcome to come and stay in the accommodation, regardless of faith or belief and whether you want an active holiday, or a quiet time to restore the spirit.

The College of the Holy Spirit is also available for conferences, functions and weddings.
