We sailed early this morning from Tobermory to the port at Craignure, eastward along the island of Mull. We took a scenic bus ride along a narrow and winding road to the small village of Fionnphort; there we caught the ferry to the historic and spiritual island of Iona. The weather gods were thankfully on our side, and we enjoyed beautiful sunny conditions while exploring the nunnery and famous 13th-century abbey. The island has a rich archeological landscape for photography, and our local guide informed us about Iona’s role as the birthplace of Christianity in Scotland. In the afternoon we retraced our ferry and bus journey to visit the seat of the MacLean Clan at Duart Castle; it dates to the 13th century and has been progressively renovated and restored since 1912.
