St COLUMBA HOTEL: Specialist Courses & Retreats

The Isle of Iona and the St Columba Hotel provide space for retreat and peaceful reflection so sought after by the people who journey here, and of course many of our individual guests and groups come for that reason. Each year we also offer a few more structured events, organised in conjunction with specialised course leaders.

Individuals and small groups are invited to enquire here about availability and rates. Please state which course or courses you are interested in attending. Groups of 12 or more please contact us for further details on our policy for group bookings.

Below you will see a summary of the upcoming courses. More information about particular courses can be found through the links on the right hand side of the page.
