The retreat will be located in the Mill House with dormitory style accommodation. Beds will be made up for your arrival and linen is included. All meals are included and there will be a welcome glass of wine on Friday. Meals will be prepared on the island using local and organic produce where possible. As the island is run by volunteers, there will be a few light chores to share. The return ferry crossing and all workshops are also included in the price of your writing retreat.
September is generally a pleasant month in the Highlands, but the weather is changeable at any time of year. Bring waterproofs, warm clothing, a full change of clothes, towels, wellies or walking boots, a head torch, a flannel and a hot water bottle. Bring swimwear if you fancy a dip in the sea. Don't forget writing pads and pens. Midge nets are available but bring your own repellent if you use it. You would make Em, who deals with Isle Martin candle management, very happy if you brought some light to share in the form of a candle.
The full weekend cost of Above the Strandline, including
meals, accommodation, workshops and return boat trip is £220
per person. Cancellations before 15 June will be refunded
minus a £25 cancellation fee. Cancellations after 15 June will
be refunded if the place is subsequently filled. We regret
that Isle Martin is not wheelchair accessible but please get
in touch if you have any questions.
