MacLeod Centre, The

A hostel which overlooks Iona Abbey in the Inner Hebrides, the MacLeod Centre was built by the Iona Community to provide temporary accommodation for up to forty-eight pilgrims in dormitories, together with resident staff. The centre also includes a double-height social space, used for meetings and dining, a craft room and study areas. Built to replace the former Youth Camp, the centre was named after the Iona Community's founder, Lord George MacLeod (1895 - 1991). The work of Bath-based Fielden Clegg Design, the design won an international competition in 1984 organised by the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland. It opened in August 1988, having cost 700,000, which was raised through a public fundraising campaign.
