New Vision

Garragh Mhor changed hands in April 2018. New owners, Janette McSkimming and Darren Ainsworth come with a wealth of knowledge of the area having taken holidays and sea kayaked up and down the West coast and across the Inner and Outer Hebrides for over a decade. We know what delights await you and we plan to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

Janette and Darren are both artists;Jan is also a Nutritionist and Homoeopath and Daz is also a Blacksmith, Wheelwright and Farrier. We are overjoyed to take on Garragh Mhor and in the fullness of time we plan to develop a programme of intermittent residential courses and retreats offering opportunities to learn about Health, Creativity and Ecology.

Plans inthe making include: "Living Nutrition - A Simple Route to Health"; "Dance & Moving Meditation"..  

Seil Island Hall is locaed just 5 minutes walk from Garragh Mhor. It has a large hall, (with a sprung floor, Sound system and PA) a small carpeted hall, (with AV facilities), a kitchen, a deck with tables for diners overlooking the quarry pool and sea;a playing field, access to the beach and the village, a community garden and large car park;perfect for many different purposes.

If you are looking for a venue to hold a residential course or retreat;please get in touch. We will do all we can to assist your ideas to manifest into a viable project. We have connections with local food providers and caterers and we are open to developing packages with you to suit your group - working with other accomodation providers if larger numbers of participants are required.
