Mull, Tobermory and Iona
Is a tiny and beautiful Hebridean island off the west coast of Scotland, cradle of Christianity in Scotland, where in 563AD the Irish monk Columba (Columkille) established a monastic settlement that evangelised large parts of Scotland and the north of England and became an important centre of European Christianity. In the Middle Ages it became the site of a Benedictine abbey, and over the centuries it has attracted many thousands of people on their own pilgrim journeys.
Iona remains a centre for pilgrimage and tourism; the daily services of the Iona Community in the Abbey church and worship elsewhere on the island are open to all; many visitors come again and again. There is a year-round population of over 100; long-established island families as well as more recent arrivals, including those who work for the Iona Community in its centres as staff or volunteers. The abbey is now managed by Historic Scotland; the Iona Community remains in residence as a living, worshipping presence. The islanders, the Iona Community and Historic Scotland work together to maintain Iona as a place of welcome.
Tobermory is probably one of the most famous villages in Scotland, and now even in the world made famous by Balamory, the well known children’s program in the 90’s
Take the foot ferry from Kilchoan or cross via Lochaline for a great day out. Try Café Fish for seriously fresh seafood lunches – hand made chocolates – Hand made silver – Tobermory distillery plus a wee taster!! and of course boat trips. A great day out with or without the car.
