Welcome to Craig Lodge!

Craig Lodge Family House of Prayer
is a Catholic retreat house run by Craig Lodge Community in the village of Dalmally set amongst the beautiful hills and lochs of Argyll, Scotland.  We invite you to come and spend time with the Lord in this place of prayer.  Craig Lodge is often described by guests as a ‘home from home.’  We look forward to welcoming you as ‘family’ during your stay with us.

Aged between 18-30 and ready for a year that will transform your life?

We offer up to 10 young people at a time the chance to experience a year of Community life – prayer, service, evangelisation, healing, formation and fellowship.
“It changed my life, it helped me to love and accept myself”
“Craig Lodge was the place I needed before joining the friars”

St Conan’s Pilgrim Way

This is a walking route of about 60 miles from Craig Lodge to the island of Iona.  Iona is where St Columba established a monastic community and brought Christianity to much of Scotland.  It has been a place of pilgrimage through the centuries.  This route takes you through some spectacular landscapes from the slopes of Ben Cruachan and along the coast of Mull. From time to time we offer guided walks of this route.
