Follow the Trail
Had St Columba seen Orinsay (above) in the South Lochs of Lewis before he discovered Iona in 597, history could have been different. The Islands Book Trust is presenting a Conference on St Columba's Trail from Thursday 22 - Saturday 24 June 2013 and it will be held at the Mission Hall, Orinsay, and at
the Ravenspoint Centre, Kershader, where it is based as an organisation. Here is an opportunity to follow the progress of a key figure in the progress of Christianity from the time that he left Donegal in 563, 1450 years ago. Slighe Chaluim Chille will be stimulating, as is the stunning scenery.
