About Holy Island

Holy Island or Lindisfarne, has been a place of pilgrimage for centuries. It is said that the corpse of St.Cuthbert was found here undecayed in the year 698 AD. Holy Island lies close to Beal and is reached - tides permitting - by a causeway. It is a populated island and has been used many times in films, with perhaps Cul-de-Sac by Roman Polanski being the most recent
