Arran, Scotland

waverley

Julie and I had a few days on Arran. We failed to get into any churches, but did have a trip on the paddle steam Waverley around Holy Island. (The photo above is from Waverley’s website. The island has its own website http://www.holyisland.org). It (including the lighthouse cottages) is now a Buddhist retreat centre (he looks a happy chap on the website). They want a volunteer vegetable gardener – time for a career change?
