Welcome to Iona

 

Just a short crossing on the ferry from Fionnphort, the Isle of Iona is a popular destination for many people each year. 

Ferry between Iona and Fionnphort

Since St Columba travelled over from Ireland and established his monastery in the 6th Century, the island has been a place of pilgrimage for Christians from all over the world.

Isle of Iona Celtic crossIona is also a beautiful island to explore on foot or by bicycle (cars not allowed).  You can take boat trips from here to the smaller islands.

 

There are many craft producers on Iona either with their own outlets or with work available in the various craft/gift shops.

Iona is also the burial place for many early Scottish kings.   In more recent times, the late leader of the Labour Party, John Smith, was buried on the island.

 

Nunnery, Isle of IonaThere are excellent examples of stone carvings throughout the grounds of the Abbey and Nunnery.  The Nunnery ruins are beautiful pink granite, unrestored (unlike the Abbey) since the Reformation.
