Carfin Grotto is Scotland's national Catholic shrine to the Virgin Mary, and is the brainchild of Father Thomas Taylor, local priest in the 1920's. The site is constructed in the image of Lourdes, a major Catholic pilgrimage site in southern France, and over the last 80 years has become a significant destination in its own right. The dozens of shrines and chapels spread over an extensive site make for a thought-provoking experience, whatever your religion or none.
