    THE VESTRY

    artist's retreat

    For artists looking for a place to write or make work and that don’t need the full use of the church, the old Vestry is ideal.   

    A double room with a comfy superking size bed, wi-fi, freesat tv, DVD player and a peaceful view over the lawn, it adjoins the church and is well away from the main house and very private.

    There is a chair, desk and chest of drawers in the room and several power points. 

    There is a shared shower-room and toilet downstairs for you in our home, but please note that it is not en-suite.

    This room is usually available to artists hiring the Church space, but can also be rented on it's own.

     It can also be rented on a nightly basis (5PM to 10AM) via Air B&B.

    Prices vary depending on availability and hire period, so contact us to discuss your project before booking.

    Breakfast included.

    Other meals are available on request: our home cooked food is well regarded. 

    If you happen to have any allergies, please note that we have a cat and the duvet & mattress topper are feather and down.

    ADDITIONAL ACCOMMODATION

    We have two double rooms for use by artists hiring the Church/studio:
    The Vestry

    see above

    The Belfry. 

    A less glamorous but just as comfy double bedroom available exclusively to artists using the space, situated in the main house and available on request.

     

    For artists hiring the church/studio accommodation is from £30 per person per night including breakfast.

    Other meals are available on request: our home cooked food is well regarded.

    If you happen to have any allergies, please note that we have a cat and the duvet & mattress topper are feather and down.

    If our onsite accommodation isn’t what you’re looking for we are happy to help organise additional or alternative accommodation in the local area for as many as required.  Tell us what you need and we’ll do our best to help.

    THINGS TO SEE AND DO

    In the heart of the Scottish West Highlands

    Beyond the lawn, patio, woods and garden is a vast area of outstanding natural beauty, waiting to be explored. Secret woodland paths, hidden ruins, and a land drenched in myth and legend: there are so many stories waiting in this stunning landscape.

    The perfect retreat and nature lovers paradise at the foot of Beinn Sgulaird, St Mary's is ideally positioned for hiking, climbing, mountain biking, coasteering, sea kayaking, sailing, boat trips to the Isles, Glen Coe and so on, birding, photography, beach combing, foraging, fishing, blogging or just chilling and letting life pass you by...

     

    Although it feels incredibly remote and rural here to some, we are not far from the main Oban to Fort William road. The drive to Oban takes 25 minutes and the drive to Fort William takes 45 minutes. 
    You can step off our single track road straight into the wilderness of the Highlands. Glencoe and Ben Nevis are both less than an hour's drive away, while Beinn Sgulaird and Beinn Fhionnlaidh are right on our doorstep.

    There are several good places to eat and drink within a short drive and fresh local seafood, venison and beef are available when in season.
