Sunday 3 July The annual Pilgrimage to Scalan takes place with Mass outdoors at 4.00pm prompt. This year marks the 300th anniversary of the foundation of the college at Scalan in 1716. Scalan can be reached by leaving Tomintoul on the A939 (B9008 Dufftown). Just beyond Auchnarrow, about five miles later, Scalan is signposted on the right on an unclassified but good road, with passing places. For those on satellite systems, AB37 9JS is a useful postcode. It should get you to Chapeltown of Glenlivet. After passing the Church of Our Lady, the whisky distillery and the water-bottling plant, all on your right, the road becomes a country track. Coaches have to stop here, about a mile from Scalan, but cars and minibuses can continue to within walking distance of the house. Thankfully, like good Christians, those who take their cars along this track can be confidently waved down by those who would like a lift. Sensible shoes are required and you should be prepared for any weather.
