The Call 

Do you have Scottish  ancestors who are drawing you? Or did William Wallace or Robert the Bruce reach out down the centuries to touch you? Maybe you've heard the call of Bonnie Scotland within your soul like the 'pipes' sounding down the glens... each of us is called for a different and personal reason.

Join us in exploring some of the stunningly beautiful Western Isles and remarkable and mysterious places in the Highlands and Central Lowlands of Scotland. We are offering this journey because some of the most powerful, dramatic and magical sacred sites in the British Isles are hidden away ‘North of the Border’.

Most of the western isles of Scotland are relatively small and off the beaten track yet their reputations around the world are impressive. Who has not heard of the Isle of Iona or Mull or maybe even the Callanish Stone Circles? Their stunning beauty and dramatic location certainly help, and so does another unseen mysterious quality – the power and energy in the land

The Journey

The lovely sheltered harbour town of Oban, set in a dramatic location in the Firth of Lorn is the gateway to the islands. It is also our base for three nights as we start our pilgrimage to some of the special places on the mainland in the Kilmartin Valley with the greatest concentration of sacred sites in the whole of Scotland. 

Its from Oban that we catch the island-hopping ferry over to Mull. After a scenic drive along the island we catch a short ferry ride over to the renowned magical Isle of Iona with its active Abbey established by St Columba. 

Moving into Glen Lyon Valley in the breathtaking natural scenery of the Central Highlands you will visit sites from different periods in history that are empowered by earth energy currents and you'll get to touch the Fortingall Yew, reputed to be the oldest living tree in Europe. We  will be based in Dunkeld for two nights as we explore this area.

Then we head towards the Royal capital city Edinburgh, stopping en route at the ancient Celtic capital of Scotland, Dunfermline. Dunfermline Abbey was established almost a thousand years ago and became a centre of pilgrimage to St Margaret. Early kings and queens of Scotland were buried here, as was Robert the Bruce whose tomb we find located on an energy line. 

Towards the end of this remarkable journey we will have a special guided tour of the unique Knights Templar sanctuary of Rosslyn Chapel with its many mysteries.  The tour ends with free time to walk Edinburgh's 'Royal Mile' and time to experience some of many attractions that this wonderful city has to offer.

On route we visit stone circles, faery glens, chambered cairns, an abbey, a royal castle, early saints churches, lochs, glens, mountains, islands, beach and ocean!  Oh, and there's a warm Scottish welcome and maybe some live traditional folk music in local pubs on free evenings.

Day 1 – Thurs, May 22nd 

Your guides, Cameron & Glenn Broughton, will meet you at Glasgow Airport and immediately your adventure begins as we travel along the banks of Loch Lomond through the spectacular scenery of the Trossachs National Park to our hotel in Oban. 

En route we'll stop for lunch at a converted chapel and be treated to homecooked food. Oban is a small but bustling port town with a beautiful bay and a colourful history. Our hotel for three nights is right on the Promenade with gorgeous views across the Bay. 
We gather for a welcome drink and dinner at a local restaurant (included)


Day 2 – Fri, May 23rd

We start the day with an orientation meeting to set the scene for the tour ahead. 

Then we’re off to the Kilmartin Valley with over 350 Neolithic and Bronze Age sacred sites! This entire landscape was held to be sacred and was the focal point for spirituality by our distant ancestors. 

After lunch at a rural cafe (included) we visit Nether Largie Standing Stones believed by Alexander Thom to be an astronomical observatory from nearly five thousand years ago. It is a perfect location for our Intention Setting Meditation. Close by are the twin Templewood Stone Circles set in a copse of trees. A short walk takes us to Nether Largie cairn that we can enter where we conclude our time in the Kilmartin Valley. 

Free-choice dinner not included in tour price


Day 3 - Sat, May 24th 

We catch the early ferry from Oban to Craignure on Mull, a 45-minute sailing. We then have an hour’s scenic drive through Mull to the ferry terminal over to the sacred Isle of Iona

Our day on Iona includes Iona Abbey, with its beautiful acoustic Chapel.  St. Columba established a monastery here in 563AD that was eventually destroyed by the Vikings. Following these raids a Benedictine Abbey was established over 800 years ago. Still an active Christian community today the Abbey is open to visitors and includes St Columba's cell and beautifully carved tombstones of many kings and chieftans. Close by, the Nunnery gardens are sublime and peaceful and will be full of colorful flowers.

Lunch at St. Columba Hotel (included) 

We also offer a hike up Dun I the only hill on Iona. This is a hike as there’s no footpath so good walking boots/shoes are required! Energy lines converge on the summit and the Pool of Eternal Youth is located there. We will meditate to connect to our spirit and angelic guides here. 

Iona is on a leyline connecting it to the energies of Callanish stone circle further north in the Hebrides that we can detect by dowsing. 

We catch the return ferry to Mull and return to Oban at the end of a long day.

Dinner at a local restaurant (included)


Day 4 -  Sun, May 25th 

Onward to our country house hotel in Dunkeld in the Central Highlands, where we will stay for two nights. 

The rest of the day is free for you to explore the historic town of Dunkeld that has a cathedral, a selection of independent shops and a river with a dramatic waterfall.

Free-choice dinner not included in tour price


Day 5 - Mon, May 26th 

We are aware that we are in a place of power, mystery and magic, where several leylines cross and the oldest surviving goddess tradition in Scotland is still kept alive by the locals.

We start the day at the sixteenth century St Mary's church at Grandtully, that has a wonderful ancient painted wooden ceiling and was built on a power centre originally used by the gnostic Culdee church. We then visit the energetic stone spiral of Croft Moraig, which is in reality a horseshoe of stones surrounded by a bank and a stone circle, a design that is reminiscent of Stonehenge in England.   

Lunch at a local restaurant in Aberfeldy, (included)

Following lunch we make a pilgrimage to Mt Shiehallion, a crystal mountain to the north, the protective guardian and source of power, a fairy-mountain and portal into the inner Earth.  Then we'll visit the Fortingall Yew, believed to be the oldest tree in Europe at 5,000 years old. It is the entrance into the magical valley of Glen Lyon and provides us with a living connection to the ancient wisdom of this land, because this tree started its life when the stone circles were being built. 

Dinner at the hotel (included)


Day 6 - Tues, May 27th

We start the day with another scenic drive to the medieval capital of Scotland, Dunfermline, where we find energy currents coursing through the Dunfermline Abbey. We will be happy to show you how to dowse for these energies with rods or pendulum. A leyline passes through here connecting it with many sacred sites further south in England including the medieval capital of England, Winchester.

Dunfermline Abbey is one of Scotland’s most important cultural sites housing the remains of many kings and queens of Scotland along with Robert the Bruce whose tomb lies under the pulpit.  

After lunch we make our way to the royal city of Edinburgh, the present day capital of Scotland. We will visit Edinburgh Castle for a guided tour of this truly historic Unesco World Heritage Site.

We then head to our hotel for a three night stay.

Free-choice dinner not included in tour price

Day 7 - Weds, May 28th

Today is free for you to explore the aspects of Edinburgh that appeal to you, from Holyrood Palace(home of the Scottish parliament), Arthur’s Seat (with spectacular views over the city), Mary King’s Close (an underground labyrinth of seventeenth century streets), Scottish National Museum, to  the Royal Yacht Britannia or the National Museum and shopping on The Royal Mile and so much more.  

Free-choice dinner not included in tour price


Day 8 - Thurs, May 29th

This final day includes guided visits to Rosslyn Chapel and Temple. 
Rosslyn Chapel, made famous by The DaVinci Code, is a remarkable building full of secrets, Green man carvings and esoteric symbolism that our guide will tell us about. It is like no other chapel or church you have been to before. We’ll also visit the ruins of Rosslyn Castle close by.

Lunch at Rosslyn Chapel cafe (not included).  
Temple was once the main preceptory or headquarters of the famed Knights Templar in Scotland. Today the ruins of the church have a distinct atmosphere and Templar markings can be seen such as skull and crossbones on several gravestones. 
Farewell dinner at a local restaurant. (included)
