Embark on an unforgettable odyssey to
some of the most spectacular sacred sites of Scotland, including
the megalithic wonders of Kilmartin Glen, the holy island of Iona,
the faery glens of Skye, the mysterious stones of Callanish, the
mountains and lochs of the Highlands, and the Templar chapel of Rosslyn!
Travel with a small group of like-minded people to the sacred places
of Scotland, a land of incomparable beauty and contrast, from the
majesty of her mountain peaks to the gentle curves of her island
shores. We will follow the ancient tellers of Scotland's unfolding
story, who have left their signatures on the land in the form of
Neolithic stone circles and cairns, iron-age homesteads, medieval
abbeys, and splendid castles. As the landscape reveals the sacred
ways in which our ancestors revered the many and varied faces of
Spirit, our journey through sacred Scotland will truly be a pilgrimage
of the soul.
Your experience will be deepened through ritual, meditation and attunement
at the most evocative of Scotland's sacred sites . . . and you will
also have plenty of time for peace and reflection as you wander on
white sands and heather-clad hills, drink in the beauty of tranquil
lochs, explore local shops and craft galleries, and listen to traditional
music, stories and legends in a land that is sure to feel like your
This year's journey to Sacred Scotland will be led by Scot
AnSgeulaiche (pictured), Scottish Highland tradition bearer
and bardic storyteller. Scot is a native of the Highlands and
storyteller to Sir Lachlan Maclean of Duart Castle, on the Isle
of Mull. He is a tour guide of many years' experience, specializing
in history, myth and legend, and has a magical way of making
the landscape come alive with all its stories and secrets from
ancient times. He has been a regular and popular presenter on
the Spirit of Scotland tours since they began.
Being on a tour with Scot was like being invited to experience
a beloved place with friends. … Never before have I had
such a completely restful yet enlivening experience abroad. It’s
the first time I actually felt bereft when leaving a place; it
was as if I had to say goodbye to home & family. Part of this
was due to the generosity of Spirit that defines Scot’s style;
part of this was due to the intimate experience of the landscape
and places that their energy and this tour/visit afforded. At the
risk of being cliché: I felt so at home connecting to the
woven layers of the sacred in Scotland that it feels like I will
always carry a piece in my heart with me. Gina M., Suffern,
The trip exceeded my expectations! I’ve been home over a
week and still expect to see Scotland’s beautiful scenery
outside my window each morning. … Scot was fantastic. Just
watching him work was eye opening to me as far as how much work
goes into running a tour, and he was phenomenal! C.A.,
