We have a full programme of led retreats but we are also open to individuals, families or groups who simply want a quiet, prayerful few days.

About us


Craig Lodge is also home to a Community inspired by Our Lady’s messages at Medjugorje.  Together we try to encourage one another to answer her call to holiness and live a life based prayer, service and evangelisation.   We look after the guests who come and stay at the retreat centre.

Craig Lodge


Craig Lodge was a guest house popular with deer stalkers and fishermen until the owners felt prompted to give it over to God and turn it into a retreat centre. The house sits peacefully in garden and woodland surrounded by hills. Dalmally village is just over 1 mile away and is on the Oban to Glasgow bus and rail routes.

Beautiful Argyll


We look forward to welcoming you during your stay with us. Argyll is a popular holiday destination. Walkers and nature lovers can enjoy the wild open spaces and you don’t have to go far from our beautiful gardens to be in with a chance of spotting hares, red deer, golden eagles or red squirrels. Craig Lodge is also en route for those making a pilgrimage to the Isle of Iona.
