I S L E - O F - I O N A • Inner Hebrides 🏴 🇬🇧 ~ Iona is a tiny island off the southwest coast of Mull in the Inner Hebrides. It is only 1.5 miles wide by 3 miles long, with a population of around 120 permanent residents.
Iona has a long and illustrious history and is well known as being ‘The cradle of Christianity’ in Scotland. While that is without doubt one of the main reasons that a reported 130,000 visitors come to Iona each year, there is much more to the island than that. It is striking to remark that despite the numbers of visitors to the island, the pervading feeling that people leave with is one of peace and restoration.
