Busy Iona (but not always)

Iona can be a busy place. On a typical summer day there can be several hundred people wandering around the village and abbey. If you visit during that time of year the following photos show what to expect. The first is of a ferry full of day-trippers arriving on the island; the second shows the long queue on Fionnphort of people just off the buses waiting to board the next ferry. The best way to see Iona is to stay on the island and explore when the crowds are gone. The second photo also shows the MV Ullin of Staffa, one of several boats that take you out to visit nearby Staffa.
