The new Kentigern Way Pilgrim Route, from Annan Old Church to Glasgow Cathedral, runs past Cairngryffe Kirk.

The Inaugural Pilgrimage took place from 8th - 20th October 2021 and was undertaken by two of the Kentigern Way Steering Group, Bill and Christine Jack.   They passed Cairngryffe Kirk on Thursday 14th October on the Biggar to Lanark leg of their journey and were met by two elders who showed them round the church.

The Pilgrimage route starts at Hoddam, travels the Annandale Way to Moffat, follows the Southern Upland Way to Traquair.
