Iona: the south end

Iona is perhaps the most celebrated of Scotland's smaller islands, its famous Abbey drawing thousands of visitors. This walk explores the less frequented southern end of the island, passing fine beaches en route to the bay where St Columba first landed on the island.


Tarmac to the golf course, then somewhat boggy path over the moorland and down to the bay.
