We try our best to ensure people can afford to come and stay or visit. This is assisted greatly by those who can help giving a little extra, so that we can in turn offer concessions to those who have less.
If you can help in this way, please contact reception to make a donation by BACS or card or click on the button below to donate through our Givey page
Candlemas at The Bield – candlelight stars and moons in a shelter in the chapel: snowdrops and aconites carpeting the shelter belt: hazel catkins tinged in gold in the gravel pit: green shoots of near- daffodil gold and planting of herb beds in the walled garden; a woodpecker in the trees above the hen houses, competing for audibility with the cockerel; honey bees fast asleep, a light greening over the furrows: deep quilts of moss and lichen submerging the ancient drystone dykes: the cattle, horses, sheep, lamas, hens protected and fed in the wintery cold: snow capping of Glen Almond hills: red rosy sunrise: porridge and smiles at breakfast: poetry, prayers, songs, love – shared in the chapel: kindly words and marks of gentleness everywhere. Warmth and quiet and being at home with your tender love. Thank you – I love you all - Ellie
