Located in Iona, St Columba Hotel features 3 accommodation with private terraces. Among the various facilities of this property are a garden, a shared lounge and a bar. The reception staff were outstanding, especially Mairi. Our well-behaved dogs were made extremely welcome. The rooms are small, but have all you need for a short stay. We'll be back!
Situated on the Isle of Iona, 500 metres from the Iona Ferry Terminal, Ardoran House boasts a sun terrace and a private beach area. Iona Abbey is 1.3 km from the property. Ardoran Houze is set in a perfect location with views of the sea. The decor is tasteful, elegant and very comfortable. Richard, the host, is mindful of visitors needs and checks regularly if all is well. The breakfast is comprehensive and served with the elegance in keeping with the rest of the house. I have no hesitation in recommending Ardoran to anyone. Thank you Richard.
Located in Bunessan in the Isle of Mull region, Scridain View features a patio. Providing free WiFi, the property also has a garden. Surprisingly large and spacious property, all the amenities you could need, lounge and kitchen with open views out over Loch Scridain and the Burg coastline. Quiet and remote, almost silent at night so you get a good nights sleep. Only used log burner one night as weather was mild and central heating system was warm enough on its own anyway. Didn't go out specifically looking for wildlife but had short-eared owls hunting close to the property, many seals at Fidden beach nearby, saw an otter off the north beach at Iona, red deer at various places across the island, and a couple of sea eagles also.
Located in Pennyghael, Craigrowan offers accommodation with free WiFi and TV, as well as a garden and a shared lounge. Some units include a seating area and/or a balcony. Craigrowan is the best B&B we've stayed in. Spacious, clean room. Fresh, hearty breakfast with loads of fruit. Sue made everything feel like home. It's an easy drive to Fionnphort for boat trips to Iona, Staffa, but away from the tourist traps of town. Wander down to the Pennygheal Hotel for supper. Craigrowan is a peaceful and welcoming place.
Built in 1750, The Colonsay Hotel features scenic views over the sea to the neighbouring island of Jura. Free parking is provided on site, and the property features a garden, terrace and library. The Hotel, the Staff the food and the Island as a whole. A great way and place to spend a holiday. I
It is one of the most sacred islands in the world and It's beauty and ambiance are beyond words. We had all our meals in Martyrs Bay Restaurant & highly recommend it. Mussels are delicious. The staff are superb especially Cathriona who went that extra mile for us. You need a moderate level of fitness to get about the island and to reach the Hermit's Cell and St Bridget's Well on Dun 1. Iona Taxi 0781 032 5990 is very reliable.
The island is steeped with history, and culture. All the facilities are at hand, from the spar to hotels. My only disappointment being that the food was below average, having eaten in both hotels on the island. However the beauty of the island compensated for that. Well worth a visit.
Iona is truly a thin place. A sacred and peaceful place steeped in history. It is without doubt a place where one can relax enjoy the stillness and the ever changing views. The weather is changeable but never boring. Be prepared for wind and rain and also delightful sunshine.Iona is a place that stays with you when you leave it’s shores.
A beautiful spiritual tranquil island with wonderful friendly people. A fantastic island.The Sbbey was wonderful and a great place for hikers. St columba hotel is a great place to eat and so is the cafe at The Abbey.
Quaint Scottish island but seems to have become inundated with more and more tourists coming on and off the island in a 24 hour period over the years. Take time to explore the beaches not just the Iona Abby.
There is something very special about Iona starting with the view from the ferry on the short crossing . Be prepared to walk everywhere and do attend a service at the Abbey and visit the Abbey museum. Definitely take walking shoes and waterproofs as weather can be wet and windy as well beautiful sunshine, stunning sun sets and fantastic clear skies at night to see the stars. The Argyle and Columba Hotels serve excellent local meals but do book your table. Would recommend Ardioran House and both hotels to stay at but do book early as they get booked up.t
