Once again we were blessed to receive Fr John and Matushka Bega to our home for an overnight stop. They were accompanied by well known photographer and writer Phil Cope. The visit was part of a pilgrimage to Holy Wells and Chapels on the West Coast of Scotland and the Outer Isles. The climax of their travels was a day visit to Saint Kilda - rough weather and sea sickness became minor issues in the quest for searching of Holy Wells and photographic evidence from these islands which had such a sad ending for their people.

They managed a good trip also to Saint Finnan's Island in Loch Shiel. I wished that I had been well enough to accompany them but alas - I have the photographs and more importantly, the prayers of Saint Finnan.
