About Iona

Scotland's isle of Iona in is famed for its holy pilgrimage sites, ancient ruins and dramatic Highland views. This windswept island in the Inner Hebrides is also home to rugged beaches and vivid green hills. Those sailing on Iona cruises can visit Iona Abbey, a 6th-century monastery with a Romanesque cloister; St. Oran's Graveyard, the burial place of Scottish kings; or a beautifully preserved medieval nunnery.

Hike up Dun I (the Hill of Iona), the island's highest point, where you can take in sweeping views of the port's extraordinary landscapes. Reservations are recommended for those hoping to eat at one of the few restaurants on the island.
