Fodor's Review

Atop the cliff rising north of the village, House of St. Columba is a small oratory said to have been used by the saint himself. Inside, stone constructions are thought to have been his bed and chair. Every year on June 9, starting at midnight, local people make a 3-km (2-mile) barefoot procession called An Turas (the journey) around 15 medieval crosses and ancient cairns, collectively called the stations of the cross.
