Spiritual background

Welcome to Anam Cara

'A Retreat Centre in the Scottish Highlands'


We are aware that the current situation still remains uncertain and there may be last-minute cancellations or changes to our programme. When a retreat is able to go ahead, our aim is to carry it out safely and appropriately in accordance with Scottish Government guidelines.

Although infection rates of Covid-19 in the Highland region are low, we must stress that there is still a risk attached with travelling to and attending any retreat. We advise anyone displaying symptoms of the virus, with a vulnerable health issue or those who are at a higher risk due to supporting people who are more vulnerable, not to attend a retreat.

We strongly recommend that you take a lateral flow test the day prior to travel. If the result is positive, you cannot attend the retreat. If you can't participate due to a positive test result, your course fees will be fully reimbursed.

We suggest bringing an extra lateral flow test so you can test yourself on arrival or during the retreat. Whilst waiting for the test result you are free to take a walk around the centre or stay in your allocated room, should weather conditions be adverse. Your co-operation and support in this is greatly appreciated.

We are aware that there is the possibility for further spikes in the number of cases which may lead to a national or local lockdown which could impact the participant's or trainer's ability to travel to Scotland. We will continue to monitor the government guidelines and update our website accordingly.

Cancellation and Transfer Policy:

Should there be a late cancellation of your retreat due to Covid-19, we will contact you as soon as possible and arrange a full refund. Alternatively, you can transfer your deposit or full payment to the next available date for the cancelled event or a different workshop of your choice.

We look forward to welcoming you on retreat.
