Our garden is a peaceful spot for individual meditation.

You may be interested in visiting other places of religious interest and we can help you plan where to go. Or follow the St. Margaret Pilgrim Journey to Dunfermline and on to St. Andrews..

For individuals - if you want your own retreat, we can offer a quiet place to stay

If you want to spend quiet time by yourself, but would also like to explore Edinburgh, then let us know when you call and we will allocate a quiet room.  There are peaceful corners in the garden and you may use our library to browse in.  If you want to visit our Chapel, a member of staff can arrange access.
