The Episcopal see was created by the union of the ancient bishoprics of Argyll and The Isles in 1847. The bishop has two seats: the Cathedral Church of St John the Divine in Oban and the Cathedral of The Isles and Collegiate Church of the Holy Spirit in Millport, Isle of Cumbrae, which is the smallest cathedral in the British Isles. There are two island retreat centres. Bishop's House is on Iona, while the College of The Holy Spirit is also in Millport.
The Right Reverend Martin Shaw was consecrated Bishop of Argyll and The Isles on 8 June 2004 at St John's Cathedral in Oban. He retired in 2009. His successor, Kevin Pearson, was elected at an Episcopal Synod held at the Cathedral of the Isles on 6 October 2010.
