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.
June 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 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 Midsummer Write, including meals,
accommodation, workshops and return boat trip is £210 per
person. Cancellations before 15 April will be refunded minus a
£25 cancellation fee. Cancellations after 15 April 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.
