Trip to Holy Island

I went to Holy Island for the first time today with Freya and Lorraine’s mum (Lorraine had to stay home and carry on with her translation work 🙁

It was a great trip and a wonderful place to visit. It would be nice to do a retreat there one day. The peace and tranquillity there makes the Isle of Arran seem like a city centre and it was weird getting off the boat on our return and stepping on to the “mainland” of Arran!

We didn’t manage to get there in time for the Lama’s talk at 2.30, which was a shame, but it was still worth making the 10-minute crossing. Next time we’ll go with Lorraine and Hamish too, maybe take a picnic and do some walking.
