For the eighth successive year, we have planned a variety of events across the island, including day-time and evenings walks of varied lengths, a steam-train ride, an evening coach trip and dinner, and a musical afternoon. For those with lots of energy, the week will end with an all-day walk in the south of the Island, which will take in some glorious countryside and scenery, as well as some fascinating historical and sacred places.
The ancient keeill sites are often found in areas of particular natural beauty and in such surroundings it is a common experience to sense something of the presence of God. Why not set aside some time to join in this special week?
