Inchmahome Priory



IMG_6227


Nestled on a tiny island in the Lake of Menteith, Inchmahome Priory has been a royal retreat as well as a monastery. Now maintained by Historic Scotland (the Scottish equivalent of English Heritage), and accessible only by boat, it's still a perfect place for quiet contemplation. As well as the atmospheric ruins of the priory itself, there are winding woodland paths by which you can trace a path around the island.

Just the other day I was watching Journey to the center of the Universe 2 and said I would like to visit historic ruins. It think it is almost magical or extraordinary to be able to walk in the same path that others had walked many years ago. Just the building remains is evidence of a place where people once lived, loved and laughed. It truly is amazing.

Something else to add to the list of Things To Do in the UK - it looks lovely, although you seem to have had perfect weather for it!
