This is the Balance Payment for a reserved place on one of the Celtic Pilgrimages organised by the Monastery of All Celtic Saints to the Isles of Scotland.
Only purchase this Balance Payment AFTER you have purchased a Pilgrimage Deposit and your booking has been confirmed (via email, at firstname.lastname@example.org).
The total cost per place is 1500 GBP (1900 USD) – Deposit (500 GBP / 600 USD) + Balance Payment (1000 GBP / 1300 USD). The price in British pounds will be updated regularly, to avoid currency fluctuations. The Balance is due by December 1st 2019, and becomes non-refundable after that date. Balances paid in advance (before December 1st) are fully refundable until December 1st.
If you prefer, the Balance can also be paid by cheque. The cheque should be written to American Friends of the Celtic Saints and sent to American Friends of the Celtic Saints, 3736 W County Rd 4, Berthoud, CO 80513. Please include a note with the names of the pilgrims and the week of pilgrimage for which you are making the payment.
The price of the Pilgrimage includes:
Accommodation for seven nights in a beautiful house on the Atlantic coast of the Isle of Mull;
All breakfasts, dinners and packed lunches (as we shall be travelling somewhere every day);
Transport by car everywhere on the Isle of Mull (we shall have three cars available all week-long);
One motor boat to take us to St Brendan’s Isle;
One sailing boat to take us to St Kenneth’s Isle;
All ferry trips to & from the Isle of Mull and Isle of Iona;
Entry tickets to all places we visit.
We aim to make sure that, once you arrive to Mull, there is nothing else for you to worry about for the entire week. This way, we may focus on the pilgrimage itself, on personal prayer and communion with one another. If you need help with any aspect of the trip to Mull, we are here to advise and help you.
We visit some of the most remote and authentic places connected with early Celtic Christianity. Some of these places have been uninhabited for centuries, with no touristic or religious routes linking them to other destinations. The pilgrimages organised by the Monastery are the only way one can visit some of these isles.
Among many other places, we shall get to the Isle of Iona (Iona Abbey, Martyrs’ Bay, the Nunnery, St Oran’s Chapel, the famous Celtic High Crosses, St Columba’s Bay, the Hill of the Turning Back to Ireland, the Marble Quarry and the Machair); the ruins of St Kenneth’s monastery and the ancient hermit cells; St Brendan’s monastery on his uninhabited Isle; and some of the great Celtic Christian places on the Isle of Mull (The Nuns’ Cave, the Carsaig Arches, Kilninian etc). The schedule depends on the weather and the state of the ocean.
