Kilmartin Glen: A Thin Place Tour With Mindie Burgoyne

Kilmartin GlenI’ve had an energy adventure today. A trip to Kilmartin Glen up near Lochgilphead in Scotland. A place of ancient energy sites dating back 4-5,000 years.

I had been invited to join a group tour run by my friend Mindie Burgoyne, the Travel Hag blogger, writer and tour organiser. She and her husband Dan had brought a group of people from the United States. I was delighted when Mindie invited me to join them at Kilmartin Glen to see Dunnad Fort and the remains of cairns, circles and cists. There are certainly plenty of them there. The fort is a testing climb but the view from the top is spectacular. The site has been occupied since the Iron Age.¬†It’s also the place where kings were crowned.

Using my pendulum I stoped in various places on the rocky hill fort to tune into the energy. I like to strip away the layers of energy impressions to see how far back I can track human occupation. I liked the protected feel I got from the energy flow. All down through the timeline. I also hit a deep band of ceremonial energy related to the creation of kings. It was strongly masculine, rather fierce and very proud. I could also see all across Kilmartin Glen. The hill fort would have been very noticeable from any approach towering above the surrounding flat land. There is a footprint in the rock and a bowl shape near it for water. I felt i had to share some energy with the place as a repayment for ‘reading’ it’s aura.

When we came down from the hill fort I went with the tour to other sites in the Kilmartin Glen. With the help of a local guide I was able to understand the layout and timeline of some of the remains.

There is certainly still energy in the standing stones and the circle we visited. I was delighted to find the Mother Stone of one circle at Temple Wood. She gave me a lovely burst of energy as she acknowledged my contact with her. That’s why I love Thin Places. The point where the energies of the past are close to the surface. And the places where I can step more easily between worlds. In fact, anyone can if they open up their intuitive abilities. So it was interesting to discuss with the other people what they were experiencing. Sharing information can often confirm a single experience because others have had it too.

That’s what I like about evidenced based work. I find it really useful to validate what I have sensed with the experiences of other people. And this very friendly group of people were happy to share their thoughts and feelings. In the end, that’s the best outcome for all of us. To go on an adventure, experience the energy and share our thoughts. I enjoy listening to different points of view. Or questions. Because it makes me think about my own experiences. And what they might mean or be interpreted as. Of course my Guides love to send me on these experiences. Because I learn so much. And get inspiration for further explorations I can carry out.

I’m sure I will be back at Kilmartin Glen and Dunnad Fort. There is a museum to explore, more monuments and plenty of walking routes to try. All to tune into the energy and find out more about this Thin Place. I cant’s wait!
