Immerse yourself in Iona

Dreamy Iona sits less than a mile off the south western-most tip of Mull. This tiny island, a cradle of Christianity in Great Britain, is a place of pilgrimage for many. Visit the ruins of the medieval abbey, established by St Columba when he arrived here from Ireland in his coracle in 563. 

The medieval nunnery is utterly absorbing. You can easily explore the rest of the island on foot, including the stunning sandy bays at its northern tip. As you explore you'll discover Iona's wonderful flora and fauna. Soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the views.
