Pilgrim Guide to Scotland
By (author) Donald Smith
This is a comprehensive introduction to Scotland’s major pilgrim routes, past and present. It covers every region and offers inclusive, simple devotional directions related to each journey. The Pilgrim Guide to Scotland is both evocative and inspirational, following each pilgrim journey as a story and as an experience. This is accompanied by simple route and geographical information for walking and travelling in a variety of ways. For those who prefer to explore from the convenience of their armchairs, there is a plethora of enthralling story and information. The concept of pilgrimage is undergoing major revival as a contemporary form of spirituality and faith in Scotland where, for many centuries, it was actively suppressed. Scotland has an exceptionally rich Celtic, medieval and modern spread of sacred places. The pilgrim theme opens up the history, environment and faith of Scotland in a unique way. A fascinating and unique way of exploring Scotland’s spiritual and cultural heritage.
