A new short video has been produced on behalf of Faith in Cowal that showcases the rich religious heritage and newly established pilgrim routes across Argyll’s spectacular Cowal peninsula.

Promoting “The Cowal Pilgrimage”, the video is narrated by Jim Ritchie and includes a backing track written by Skye Beautyman, Gordon Whyte and Ciaran Whyte (performed by the eXp Youth Work School of Music).

Faith in Cowal project lead Dan Romani said: “After launching a network of pilgrim trails in Cowal just a few weeks ago, we’ve produced a video that we hope will entice people to come and try them out. It reveals fascinating landmarks in all their glory such as Kilmorich church in Colintraive, the carved stones in Kilmodan and Lochgoilhead and Kilmun Church on the banks of Holy Loch, highlighting the natural beauty of the peninsula all the while.

“It’s aimed at anyone visiting this stunning part of the world, be they cyclists, ramblers or campervan enthusiasts and was created by Glasgow based company Code Word Zebra with production by Subtle Sensor and features a number of Dunoon residents helping out as ‘extras’. 

“There's such a strong footprint of early Christianity in Cowal and we’re delighted that this short film brings it to life in such a vivid way" added Dan. "We hope the video, and the 200 mile network of trails themselves, will appeal to visitors to the area".

The video, along with information about the pilgrim sites and detailed walking guides for The Cowal Pilgrimage, can all be found on the Faith in Cowal website:
