The annual outdoor Mass at the Hidden Seminary at Scalan will be held on Sunday 3 July at 16:00 with Bishop Toal of Motherwell as the preacher.
How to get there:
Scalan can be reached by leaving Tomintoul on the B9008. Just beyond Auchnarrow, about five miles further.
Scalan is signposted on the right on an unclassified but fairly good road. For those on satellite systems AB37 9JS is a useful, though an approximate postcode. It should get you to Chapeltown of Glenlivet. There you will see the Catholic Church on your right, the distillery, and the Highland Spring bottling plant. Shortly after that is the point where buses must disembark their passengers. Cars and minibuses can continue down a country track and can get very close to Scalan.
Scalan is one mile from this point, along the track requiring sensible shoes, and one should be prepared for any weather. Thankfully, like good Christians, those who take their cars along this track can be confidently waved down by those who would like a lift.
