Holy Isle, Ayrshire

Information


Holy Isle is on the Firth of Clyde within Lamlash Bay on the larger island of Arran. The island is approx. 1.9 miles (3km) long and around half a mile (1km) wide.

As the name suggests the island has a long history as a sacred site, with a spring or Holy well thought to have healing properties, a hermit cave of 6th Century monk Saint Molaise that has runic writing of the roof, and evidence of a 13th Century monastery.

The island today is owned by the Samyé Ling Buddhist Community with just a couple of settlements. The rest of the island is treated as a nature reserve with wild Eriskay ponies, Saanen goat and Soay sheep. The rare Rock Whitebeam tree can be found on the Holy island.

There is a regular ferry service from Lamlash on the Isle of Arran.
