Anam Cara lies 600 feet above sea level and overlooks the city of inverness with stunning easterly and southerly views towards the Monadhliath Mountains. We are only three miles from the city centre yet surrounded by farm and woodland. The centre is set in seven acres of land and the scope for walking is endless.
The main venue is a purpose built octagon, constructed from locally grown timber with large patio windows looking south over Invernes and the mountains beyond. The log burning stove, oak floor and turf room creates a unique and lovely space. The builing also has a kitchen and library for general use. There is a range of interesting builindgs including a secluded shrine room, a 'barrel' therapy room in which treatments are available by arrangement and an earthlode - a cave in the hillside.
Workshops and retreats are fully residential with nutritious vegetarian meals provided. We use organic produce as often as we can - a small proportion from our own garden. All meals are prepared by experienced cooks, with participants assisting in the 'Helping Hands' wash up rota.
