Are you curious about what a pilgrimage to Iona is like?  A new article penned by Culture Honey Touring Founder and Guide, Georgia Sanders, was just published on our sister site, In it she highlights the allure of the tiny island located off the coast of Scotland in the Inner Hebrides and opens a window into her personal journey to visit. 

"The mysterious island of Iona is calling – 'who will sojourn with us for a time'?  The natural and spiritual appeal of this tiny island in the Inner Hebrides off the coast of Scotland has been drawing travelers to its shores at least since the 500’s when St. Columba and his companions arrived from Ireland and established a monastic community there. As a place dedicated to prayer and spiritual undertakings for centuries, Iona is considered a “thin” place to those with a Celtic mindset – a thin place where eternity and the present meet in a palpable way – so much so that kings have long vied for the blessing of being buried in this holy ground.  In fact, a 1549 inventory of 48 Scottish, 8 Norwegian and 4 Irish kings was recorded! Intrigued?"

Crossing a threshold is an important moment in Celtic thinking - this one is at the entrance to the 12th century St Oran's chapel on Iona...

About Celtic Way Pilgrimages

At Culture Honey, we have discovered a deeply fulfilling spiritual thread of the Christian faith originating in Celtic Ireland and Scotland.  We have written many articles which are published on about travel to these lovely countries and the benefits of the Celtic pathway to the modern, spiritual, and holistic human experience. Our favorite influences are David Whyte, John Philip Newell, Mirabai Starrand Richard Rohr to name a few! We have experienced the beauty in these serene and sometimes rugged destinations and we have known the peace that the spiritual practices of liturgy, silence and meditation offer us. We have enjoyed and benefited greatly from learning the historical stories and significance of the places we plan to visit. Now it is our great joy to offer to share these things with you!
