"let me say my daily prayers, sometimes chanting, sometimes quiet, always thanking God."
The little island of Iona off the west coast of Scotland has been a place of pilgrimage since St Columba established a monastery there in 6th century. It was from Iona that St Columba set out on missionary journeys that brought the good news of Christ to the people of Scotland and beyond. The island has been revered as a holy place to the present day. We love to honour St Columba by going on pilgrimage to this special place.
St Conan's Pilgrim Way
We have named the 60 mile walk from Craig Lodge to Iona, the St Conan's Pilgrim Way. We love to make this pilgrimage ourselves and we have pulled together useful route information here
to help you plan your own pilgrimage to Iona.
