Sited romantically on the Isle of Cumbrae in the Firth of Clyde, the Cathedral of the Isles is one of two cathedrals of the Diocese of Argyll and the Isles (the other one is at Oban). Founded in 1849 and consecrated in 1851, the Cathedral and adjacent College of the Holy Spirit, now used as a retreat house, were designed by William Butterfield, one of the greatest nineteenth century British architects. The buildings remain with little alteration and now offer an ideal setting for worship, music, study and events. This unique heritage is now in need of conservation and development, and this is the work of the Friends
