Another superb time here, this time as Retreat Leader. They catered superbly for all 21 of us and Rob the Warden was brilliant! Everyone wants to come again so that says something. Thank you Bishop’s House and thank you Iona

Hi, thanks for the enquiry. Depending on what is happening in the House, we can put some washing on for you (and we have lots of washing line space outside that you can use) - with the rider that we put washes on 'at your own risk'. ;-) But just to add that we are pretty much full for the 2017 and 2018 seasons. If you have specific dates in mind, then by all means send them through but just to raise a flag there! Best wishes, Marianne (Warden)

"We had a sea view room which was great."
"Rooms facing the water have great views - Wifi available in the lounge, library and the rooms at that end of the house"
"Wifi one end of the house. No phone signal. O2 is achievable due to a mast on Mull. Worth going to just for the views alone."
"There is a stair lift, golf buggy and scooter to use"
