Iona

I've been sorting out some pictures...

Walking to the ferry at Fionnphort, on the Isle of Mull


















Landed!

















Baile Mor, Iona's village


















The ruins of the old Augustinian convent


















An Iona bee on the ivy-leaved toadflax that grows everywhere


















St Mary's Abbey


















The High Cross at the Abbey























The Cloisters


















Inside the Abbey Church


















Today's reading is John 15.18-21...


















The High Altar


















Ferns in the chancel wall!


















The font - the legs are of Iona marble


















Gardens in Baile Mor
















Bishop's House, the Anglican retreat house




















An old cat in the sun...


















The post box

  1. I could look at images of Iona all day. It appears that you had great weather!

    1. That day was... but there were less photogenic gales and sheets of rain, too! I'll try and pick out some of the ones taken on Mull that show the rough side of the Hebrides, too...
