One of the special places we visited in Scotland was the small Isle of Iona. The Irish Saint Columba founded a monastery there in the 6th century and it remained a center of Gaelic Monasticism for 4 centuries.
We couldn’t have wished for a more gorgeous, sparkling day to take a ferry ride and walk around the village.
The Iona Abbey is a short hike from the ferry dock.
The 8th Duke and Duchess of Argyle are buried inside.
We wanted to stay longer in this tranquil spot, but had to catch the ferry back.
