Friends,  students and fellow Druids are welcome to come and stay for a study retreat at the Castle of the Muses in Scotland for a weekend, a week or longer… suitable accommodation is available, and visitors are expected to join in with the daily rhythm of the spiritual life of the Castle, which is a Druid Philosophical Retreat Sanctuary, away from the cares and bustle of the modern world. Please make sure you bring a bathing costume as there are excellent swimming, hot-tub and Jacuzzi facilities nearby which can be enjoyed as part of your stay! Therapeutic Massage and Transpersonal Counselling sessions can also be booked as part of the experience.  The most important feature of the Castle is our very extensive philosophical research library, divided into 9 Sections (named after the classical Muses) and it is hoped that the bulk of your time here will be spent in quiet study and research – guidance is  available on academic matters and writing and research projects.  Gifts of book, music, art  and other learning resources are always welcome as are bequests and donations towards bursaries and scholarships and the work of the Castle in general. We urgently need funding to lay a stair carpet and to complete building the library shelves and to complete The Great Hall, which is the main museum exhibition space and conference room. Volunteers are also needed to come and help with archiving, cataloguing, research and development work.
