From Oban, we took a day tour to the Isle of Iona. It started by taking a 45 minute ferry ride from Oban to the Isle of Mull. Then we had an hour and fifteen minute bus ride to the other side of Mull to catch a 15 minute ferry to the Isle of Iona. There wasn’t much on Mull with the exception of one scary bus ride. There was only a single lane road and the traffic flies up and down the road. Our bus driver hit the brakes hard a number of times.
Many people make the journey to the Isle of Iona because it is believed that either the Book of Kells was written here or started here. We spent our two hours walking around. It was very windy but still warm enough to not need a jacket. I was surprised how nice and blue the water was. I never thought it would look that nice in the north.
Only residents are allowed to have cars on the island. There are places for people to stay but you have to leave your car on Oban or Mull. The island is a very cute place to walk around and relax. I didn’t take any of the free eggs but people were curious.
