My dad and grand parents used to take me up here when I was wee, it's still a really nice visit. Your welcome even if your not Catholic, it's just really nice to walk around and then get a coffee in the tea room afterwards

This is a lovely shrine with a lot of religious meaning. Definitely worth a trip if you are religious! Better on a sunny day tho as mostly outside

We were driving through Wishaw and stopped here on our way back to Perth. The last time I visited was in the 1980s, since then there have been a lot of changes, some of the smaller caves or grottos are in poor condition.
