Third visit to Iona. A truly spiritual place. The north beach is a short hike and well worth it. Take a picnic if the weather is good. You can easily spend hours on this beach.

Easy walk from abbey of 25 minutes. If weather good then views and beaches are fabulous. The ferry across to Iona runs every few minutes and is not expensive. Iona well worth a visit

Visiting this white sand beach at the north-west end of the Isle of Iona was the high point of our Iona visit. The walk was about 30-45 minutes from the ferry each way. The walk up the island (and back) was great as well -...More
