Featuring mountain views and only a 10-minute walk to sandy beaches, Iona Pods features pod accommodation in Iona on a working croft. Complimentary WiFi is provided. The pod is really clean, cozy and new. The host is really kind and helpful during the whole communication process and our stay there. The pod is comfortable for us 4 grown-ups to stay. The kitchen tools in the pod are handy and well -prepared (include the two burners hot plate, microwave kettle and cutlery). The communal shower and toilet place is clean too. Although the shower place may be a little bit slippery after shower. Maybe bringing a sandal for the shower will be a good idea. The owner is thoughtful for small details, like the lighting outside the pods and communal place. In sum, it was a lovely stay. Plus, it's just walking distance to an excellent white sand beach. Highly recommend for Iona pods.
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. Loved the little island. We were searching for our roots on the island, so were there with a purpose.
Lovely views and atmosphere. Good quality and value meals at the pub and heritage centre café. Most stunning beaches (North Beach) as well as a sense of peacefulness. Its great to see visitors walking as no cars are allowed.
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.
