The Faith in Cowal Driving Trail
An excellent driving tour of the main pilgrim sites in Cowal
Here are some some of the sites (and sights) which might be of interest to a pilgrim – places rooted in the early church in Cowal. These include churches and chapels; holy wells and carved stones; as well as foundations, cairns and ruins. The map, depicted, shows you where the fifteen main sites are in relation to each other, and how they’re connected by road.
It also offers a suggested circuit, which takes in many of the main sites, some of the minor ones, and some ‘tempting tangents’ that encourage you to break out of the circuit and explore more widely.
The map can be found in leaflet form on, or near, most of the pilgrim sites it depicts. You’re also welcome to download it from this site. Be aware that this map is focused on driving routes only, and is not accurate enough to use as a walking guide!
