Mulling it over (part 6) – visit to Iona blessed with great weather

The Abbey @Iona
(above and below)

On Tuesday we had a great day on Iona with brilliantly sunny weather.  The island of Iona is just a short ferry ride from Fionnphort at the western end of the Ross of Mull. We got to Iona's famous Abbey before it got too crowded. This post is mainly photos of the Abbey.
