Sacred Sites
Iona Abbey is regarded as the first Christian site in Scotland. Now in the care of the National Trust for Scotland, the Abbey was founded by St Columba in AD 563 and is one of Scotlandís most sacred sites.
As well as churches and abbeys, standing stones and ley lines can be another fascinating theme for tours, not to mention Celtic legends.

Are you interested in the 'Da Vinci Code'?
If so, a trip to Rossyln Chapel is a must! See if you can solve the puzzle of the mysterious carvings.
Or how about visiting the carved grave slab of a crusader in the ruins of tiny St Columba's Chapel (Skeabost, Isle of Skye).

Marvellous examples of carved gravestones can be seen at Kilmartin churchyard (Argyll). Around Kilmartin Glen many prehistoric and medieval monuments can be found including burial cairns, stone circles and cup-and-ring engravings. Some of these historic sites are 5000 years old. The ancient hill fort at Dunadd was once the capital of Kingdom of Dalriada where kings were crowned.

The choice is yours!

Your enthusiasm, knowledge and thoughtful gestures made our holiday.
