In the heart of the Scottish Highlands, come and enjoy peace, rest, comfort, tranquility and take the opportunity to listen to God’s voice in the quietness. Come and hear what the Lord wants to whisper into you heart for the next phase of your life.

In today’s fast-paced society, finding time to sit and reflect on life, hear from God and enjoy the abundance of His creation is becoming more and more difficult. With each increasing pressure, the time we spend with God, as well as just time for ourselves, is diminished.  Yet, our human spirits yearn for these times of restoration; time to rest, time to pray, time to enjoy God’s Word, time to just ‘be’.

A Still Waters Retreat is the perfect antidote to life’s constant demands. There is no programme of events or heavy teaching schedule, only a gentle devotional over breakfast times and a short teaching by the fireside each evening in the comfort of our drawing room. The rest of the day is free for you to focus on God, to listen to His voice and to enjoy some relaxing time to yourself.

What better location for such an event than in the amazing beauty of and peace of Blairmore House?  With spacious and luxurious accommodation, nestled in a large woodland estate, surrounded by the stunning vista of the highlands of Scotland, Blairmore offers comfort, seclusion and creative inspiration.

Rest & Reflect in the Lord

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

Psalm 23:1-4, ESV
