The island was wonderful, very much exceeding my expectations. It was perhaps the smallest of our retreat destinations, but at the same time was packed full of delights-
Ancient monastic sites- church, beehive cells, a hermits cave.
Wildlife like you would not believe- otters, seabirds, seals, corncrakes. Nearby ospreys (seen on the return.) Also- a complete absence of ticks and midges!
Sun- three days with barely a cloud. Sure, it was windy, but mostly gloriously warm. Warm enough for diving into the sea for some of us!
We sat round fires, walked out meditations and laughed a lot.
It was wonderful.
Thanks to all of you that came along…
Wow…I would love to have been there. Ah well ‘Next year in Jerusalem’…
That looks incredible. Beautiful photos, too.

Lovely. I sailed out there in August 2012 in a little ‘mirror’ dinghy from the mainland for a little pilgrimage of my own. Good job.
Quite a trip in a mirror! Cheers…
