Dunkeld & Peaks Pilgrim Walks

3-6 MAY 2019


These walks provide a range of experiences: Immersion into the beauty  of nature-sound and sight and our deep connection with place and  people, flora and fauna. 

The walk provides opportunity for silence and/or  conversation-exploring mutual experiences and learning from our story of  journey around transitions in life, or quietly being with what is  taking place in our own season of life. It may be just the simple  pleasure of unencumbered walking and being open to what transpires  within and among us as a pilgrim

Cost includes all accommodation, meals, guide and transport.  Please enquire about a place: Residential and non-residential are  limited to 20 persons. 

Cost also varies on length of pilgrim walk, please enquire.
