We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and we hope that in due course, we will be able to welcome you again. Please keep an eye on our website, which will be kept updated with plans for the future.

Welcome To The Cathedral Guest House

The Guest House is a combination of a Visit Scotland 3 Star Guest House and Retreat House. It is located adjacent to Britain’s smallest cathedral, The Cathedral of The Isles. Both were built at the same time in 1851 by the famous Gothic Revival architect William Butterfield. The College was originally built for students of theology but is now used as a guest house.

The Guest House provides bed & breakfast accommodation and for group bookings can also provide full and half board options by arrangement.
