Scottish walkers revive ancient pilgrimage

"Pilgrimage is about remembering 'our journey toward heaven,'" said Cardinal Keith O'Brien who recently led a group on the ancient pilgrimage from Edinburgh to St Andrews, Scotland.

In the 11th and 12th centuries, the route used to attract thousands of pilgrims. Now it is seen as a chance to allow Catholics and Protestants to walk together, for walkers to regain their spirituality, or to "add tales of pilgrimage to the store of stories they're collecting to tell their grandchildren."

St. Andrews, once known as Kilrymont, was a favorite pilgrimage site in the Middle Ages, after a cathedral was built house the bones of Saint Andrew.
