St Columba’s Way – 261 miles – 1 month – Iona to St Andrews. Saint Columba – the “Church Dove” – is revered for bringing Christianity to Scotland. His abbey at Iona remains a holy place and a place of sanctuary to this day. Pilgrims can now travel from the cloud-touched islands of the Scottish West Coast, to the ecclesiastical and intellectual centre of Saint Andrews in the East, in honour of Saint Columba. This journey – including two ferry rides – passes through quiet glens, welcoming Highland villages, lonely hills, and tranquil lochs. Saint Columba spoke often of “thin places”, where the spiritual world is particularly close at hand – with Iona itself being one such spot. We hope that you find many such “thin places” along this beautiful route.
