The College of The Holy Spirit

North College 1

Built in 1851 as a theological college for the Scottish Episcopal Church, the College of the Holy Spirit is attached to the Cathedral of The Isles, Britain’s smallest cathedral, and is set in 8 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds. We offer accommodation to groups and individuals as well as organised retreats.

We have a selection of 16 bedrooms. These include single, twin or double rooms and two family rooms. Five of the bedrooms are en-suite and there is also a ground floor bedroom and bathroom which is specifically set up for those who are physically less able.

Guests have the use of our library and common room. The Cathedral is open every day for services or simply quiet times and reflection.
