Cruise by Iona Cruises

Isle of Iona, Scotland, United Kingdom
Isle of Iona, Scotland, United Kingdom

The island of Iona in the Inner Hebrides may be physically small, at just 1.5 miles wide by 3 miles long, but as the ‘The Cradle of Christianity in Scotland’ it has a big place in British history, religion and spirituality, and has an even bigger place in the heart of people around the world.

While you won’t get to step ashore and follow in the footsteps of those who pilgrimage on Iona, you will catch a glimpse of the island’s famous landmarks as you sail by. The highlight is Iona Abbey, one of Europe’s oldest Christian centres and said to be the final resting place of 48 medieval kings including the eleventh-century king Macbeth of Shakespearean fame. Your scenic cruise is an opportunity to delight in the peace and beauty of Iona’s gorgeous landscapes and its surrounding waterways too.
