Accommodation is in a Bunkhouse on the mainland. This is basic accommodation with bunkbeds and simple facilities. There is an open fire and some storage heating.
Each day we will drive to the start of the walk and arrange to be collected form the end. The terrain is easy but open countryside and so it is essential to have good walking shoes, a backpack and waterproof jacket.
We will have prayer together every day and opportunity for Mass on a couple of the days.
