The Cathedral of the Isles and adjacent College of the Holy Spirit offer a wonderful resource for worship, music, retreats and events. Romantically sited on the Island of Cumbrae in the Firth of Clyde, the Cathedral is easily accessible from the mainland and the cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh. Please click the links to the right to read more. This unique heritage is in need of restoration and development and this is the work of the Friends.
