Mary Gunn has lived on Holy Island for over 46 years and has been running Holy Island Hikes for fifteen years. Mary will be our official guide when we walk from Barn at Beal to Holy Island on Saturday 14 August. 

We spoke to Mary about the history of the pilgrims walk and also about King Oswald, as well as the conditions you will find when you step onto the seabed to make the crossing to Holy Island. 

Watch the interview below to find out more:
