Carfin Grotto & Pilgrimage Centre

Situated in the village of Carfin, 2 miles (3 km) northeast of Motherwell, the Carfin Grotto was created in 1922 as a copy of the Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes. Within the grounds of the Carfin Grotto is the Carfin Pilgrimage Centre which is dedicated to tracing the traditions, history and motivations of pilgrimage, particularly in Scotland. A memorial to victims of the Irish potato famine is also to be found.
