Isle of Iona

Visiting Iona in November is quite an experience. Gale force winds, pouring rain, sunshine breaking through grey clouds, and cold temperatures are a guarantee. We set out early to catch the ferry from Mull to Iona. The scenery on the drive was spectacular, even in 'dreich' weather. We paid £7.10 for a return journey and were the only group on the 11:30am ferry. Apart from a Spar, nothing was open on the island, so we trekked through the rain to the Abbey in search of shelter. Ken rightly pointed out that our experience was authentic for the west coast of Scotland. So, I made the best of the raindrops on my lens and took in the beauty of Iona:


  1. Andrea... seriously, your photos are amazing! You have a great eye. That photo of the beach with the rainbow is going to be your ticket to Historic Scotland photo contest glory! :-)

    Glad you guys are having a good time. Isn't Iona beautiful?!

    1. That's very kind of you, Jesse! Thanks for all of your tips along the way. We loved our trip and agree that Iona is STUNNING! We want to go when it's a wee bit warmer next time. ;)
