Located in Iona, St Columba Hotel has 3 accommodations 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!
Featuring mountain views and only a 10-minute walk to sandy beaches, Iona Pods features pod accommodations in Iona on a working croft. Complimentary WiFi is provided. The host is very friendly. The facilities are very new and we enjoyed the whole experience. It is so peaceful in the Pod and at night you hardly can hear anything apart from some birds or sheep. The shower and toilet facilities are outside and they are all brand new. Very nice. Also the pod is very warm inside with floor heating on. You wouldn't feel cold at night at all. You can control the temperature yourself.
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 accommodations with free WiFi and TV, as well as a garden and a shared lounge. Some units include a seating area and/or a balcony. Fantastic location and host. one of the best stays in 2 months of travelling. Highly recommended.

I would stayed a bit longer in Iona. it is just beautiful place to be. I enjoy the peacefulness in there and so many birds. I can not describe the feeling when you are there. You have to experience yourself.
Iona is a small island with a very friendly population. There is enough to do and see to keep you busy for several days. There are only 3 full restaurants on the island but the food is locally grown and sourced. I intend to return as soon as I can.
A remote island with a strong spiritual heritage. Great for retreats. Be sure to bring good hiking shoes/boots to enjoy various parts of the island. If you are so inclined, there are regular worship services in the Abbey and at Bishop’ House.
Iona is only a 10 minute ferry ride from Mull. Lots of visitors travel for the day, so it is lovely to stay for the evening and experience the true peacefulness of the island. Iona is a small Island and is easy walking, as it is fairly flat. It is well worth the walk to the beaches, very few people make it that far. The water is such a beautiful colour and so clear. The Abbey is a must see and the cemetery next door is interesting too. John Smith (ex Labour leader) is laid to rest here. Birdwatchers will enjoy trying to spot the corncrake. I heard them, but didn't see them. There are 3 places to eat on the Island at night, so booking is essential. I ate the Argyll Hotel and found it very friendly and efficient. The standard of the food was first class, they obviously have a very talented chef.
