In September, Ron’s Ramblers are planning to be the first group of walkers to pioneer a new long distance walk through Mid-Argyll called the Columba Route. The Heart of Argyll Tourism Alliance has already registered the route with the Scottish Pilgrim Routes Forum as a Pilgrimage Walk, linking the Kintyre Way (Tarbert) with Oban and Lismore. It will again be a sponsored walk, this time raising funds for Mary’s Meals. They have an open invitation to all and hope that people will join them, either as walkers on at least one of the stages, or helping with the organisation and provision of accommodation. They will be joined by the Mid-Argyll Ramblers. Ron’s Ramblers are very appreciative of all of the donations they have received over the years and would be very grateful for any donation you are able to give to Mary’s Meals.
As part of this pilgrimage there will be a communion service in Kilmory Chapel on Monday 11 September at 10 am.
