St Kentigern's Way Service of Dedication

Another red letter day yesterday in Glasgow as Bill and Christine Jack, plus a group of friends and supporters, walked the final stretch from Glasgow Green to the Cathedral to complete their inaugural 150 mile walk of the newly recreated Kentigern Way pilgrim route.


A special welcome from the Lord Provost and a service of dedication for the Way led by Rev Mark Johnstone, the Cathedral Minister, completed a very fitting occasion.



Four years ago, Bill and Christine were inspired by walking the Camino de Santiago to create this route in celebration of Kentigern. Popularly known as St Mungo, Kentigern was a contemporary of St Columba. Bill and Christine have used existing waymarked long distance paths through the stunning scenery of the Southern Uplands and the Clyde Valley.


Leaving Annan on 12th October, Bill and Christine covered an average of 20 km / day - good going for pilgrims half their age! On behalf of all of us in the SPRF network and friends and contacts, many congratulations on achieving this milestone.


Now, we just want many more people to use the Way! For more details of this fine route see http://kentigernway.com/
