In Buddhist tradition, dating back to the time of the Buddha, practitioners have undertaken periods of solitude and reflection as integral to their practice. At Dhanakosa we support this tradition by the upkeep and maintenance of two separate solitary retreat facilities.
Covid-19 update: Due to current travel restrictions in Scotland due to the Covid-19 outbreak our solitary retreat facilities are closed. If the easing of restrictions by the Scottish Government continues as planned then we expect to be able to re-open in July. If you have a solitary retreat booked we will be in touch with you individually at least two weeks before the start of your retreat.
The bothy provides a more remote solitary retreat facility for those experienced with solitary retreats and looking for a secluded space to do a longer retreat. You can book for a minimum period of 3 weeks. Click here for more information.
Note: There is an application process to book a retreat in the bothy due to the isolated location and longer minimum period of stay.
Our vajra sheilin retreat hut is an excellent facility both for those familiar to retreat practice, and for those who are looking to undertake their first solitary retreat. You can book for one to two weeks at a time. Click here for more information.
