Erratic Rock; different tide, different day.
Winter is coming! The Iona season is well and truly on the wind down now. Jasmine wears the Sound of Iona oversized scarf, great for the coming colder months - definitely brightens up any outfit, or room for that matter! . . . . . . #ootd #ltkit #fashion #instafashion #scarf #winter #winterwarmer #colours #scottishdesign #scottishdesign #tartan #scottishtartan #wool #soundofiona #isleofiona #scotland #oversizedscarf #textiles #scottishtextiles #celtic #celticfashion #celticdesign #inspire
Erratic Rock.
Just a little morning bonding with this little baby Scottish highland calf on the Isle of Iona 😍💙. The most gentle creatures, much like Icelandic horses. This baby really tried to kiss me ❤️☺️! #scotland #iona #isleofiona #beautifulscotland #scotlandhighlands #scottishhighlandcattle #highlandcattle

Deep peace of the Son of Peace to you. I love this photo of my daughter Langley, making the most of a quiet moment, gazing out on the Sound of Iona, tea cup in hand. It’s both an illustration of and an invitation to a truly thin place — where we are able to stop and notice the presence of God with us. As we frantically pull our loved ones together and make our way to worship today, may we all be willing to stop and notice that Immanuel, God, is with us. Deep peace of the Son of Peace to you. + + + @argyllhoteliona #pilgrimage #peace #prayer #stillness #solitude #soundofiona #iona #isleofiona #sacred #celticChristianity #celtic #columba #argyll #argyllhotel #mullandiona #tea #ponder #meditation #scripture #quiet #silence
Monday, July 11th, 2019 - Day Eleven : Isle of Iona Abbey Sithean Mor Columas Bay Iona is known as the Holy Isle, and is said to be the seat of Christianity in Scotland. The monastery at Iona was founded in the 6th Century by St. Columba, and was the focal point of the spread of Christianity through the Dal Riata and throughout Europe. The Abbey of Iona stands as a majestic reminder of the long history of Christianity here. The original buildings of St. Columba's time would have been made of wattle and timber or wood and thatch, and so nothing of them remain. The current structure was begun in the 12th and 13th centuries. There is also a nunnery here. Iona housed St. Columba at a time when Celtic illumination was a part of Celtic Christianity. The Book of Kells is thought to have been largely produced here, and St. Aidan, the monk who founded the monastary at Lindisfarne, served at this Abbey first. Sithean Mor “Big Fairy Hill” is the next step in the journey to Iona. Sithean Mor reveals the connection of Iona to the fey. Sithean Mor is said to be a fairy mound, and a number of folklore tales are connected to the place. This is a great opportunity for those who feel connected to the fey to visit this beautiful, enchanted place. Columbas Bay is the place where St. Columba and the other monks were said to have landed on the island. Beautiful views await here, and it's well worth the walk. There are conical piles of stone on the west side, of unknown, but ancient, origin. Iona white and green marble can be found here, as well as translucent green “Columba's tears” or “mermaid's tears”. Locals say travelers should choose two stones, one to carry their negative thoughts and get tossed into the ocean, and the other to take with them to remind them of their journey to Iona. #avalon #sacredtravel #iona #isleofiona #ionaabbey #sitheanmor #Columbasbay #michelleorwick #spiriutalactivator

No filter needed at St Columba's Bay on Iona today... Took a bit to get there, but I did it! Quite literally soaked my Blunnies through walking/schlepping through boggy land! #blundstone #iona #isleofiona #stcolumbasbay #stcolumba #wetfeet #hartofkatiehappiness #goingtosleepwelltonight
Bay at the Back of the Ocean looking splendid as always. The openness of the beach, the sound of the ocean and the warmth of the sun make you feel like your life is complete. Relive my experiences on Iona by checking out Part 2 of my Driving to Iona and Mull series. Link in bio🔝
I’m not religious. At best I would say I’m agnostic, but I wanted to visit Iona because of its history as the metropolis of a new, beckoning culture that transformed the way our world worked forever - literacy. What I didn’t count on was the serenity of the island. Dotted around were benches inscribed with beautiful words like, “rest and remember.” So I did just that. I stopped, sat down on the bench with Dougie dog on my lap, and remembered my Scottish Grandad and the time he grew a beard to look like Santa, my brother when he dressed up as Buzz Lightyear for a stag do but had little kids coming up to him asking for autographs, and for some reason my first dog Bella. I guess she would have liked the island, sitting here in the sun, and Dougie. + What would you have thought about on this bench? + I’ve written a blog about my visit to Iona and it’s bloody (it wasn’t always peaceful!) history. Link is in the bio.

I'd never heard of Turnstones before - but was able to identify these wee chaps with the Collins Bird Guide app. North End of Iona - Staffa in the background of the 2nd pic. #turnstone #birds #iona #isleofiona #wader #staffa #lovemullandiona

You can’t miss your boat. It’s yours. It stays docked till you’re ready. The only boat you can miss is someone else’s. Let them have theirs while you wait for yours.

My friend Cheryl knitted a Guernsey style scarf for me with sea green (the color of the water) wool from Iona . Check out Iona Craft Shop’s website for wool collection, vibrant colors found on the Isle . #isleofiona #visitscotland #scotlandhighlands #wool #scotland #guernsey #seaweed #knitting #iona
When I first arrived on the Isle of Mull I was overwhelmed by just how ancient this little rock is. It’s huge, sweeping mountains that were formed beneath earth’s crust more than 3 billion years ago loomed over me. Hints of glories past with 5000 year old standing stones, its jagged coastline full of caves home to people from 6000BC and medieval Iona, once the hub of Christian faith, have all served as a healthy reminder of just how tiny and insignificant we are in this big world. Knowing this, makes for a strange mix of terrifying and oddly, liberating. 🌍 + What places have you visited that made you feel this way? * * * * * * #historicscotland #ancienthistory #historygeek #hiddenscotland #isleofmull #visitscotland #thisisscotland #discoverscotland #scottishislands #scotlandlover #isleofiona #scottishhighlands #planetearth #solofemaletraveler #hikingwithdogs #campingwithdogs #vanlifeuk #vanlifescotland #scottishbeaches #scotlandsbeauty #scottishhistory #explorescotland #camperlife #scotlandphotography #unlimitedscotland #exploretocreate #womenontheroad #fatgirlstraveling
I always ask for ‘heart stones’ to show themselves to me when I’m beach combing. I think this one manifesting in response to my request was pretty impressive. #heartstone #heartstones #blessing #gift #iona #isleofiona
The sunny shores of Iona. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 #isleofiona #visitscotland
As the temperature drops, we can’t help but reminisce about warm weather adventures in Scotland this past summer. Note the double rainbow in the 3rd photo. 🌈🌈#isleofstaffa #isleofiona #isleofmull #grayandco #privateactivejourneys
Iona has a very colorful history, related to not only the Grail stories but to stories of Atlantis, King Arthur, Merlin, St. Brighid and the Goddess Sophia. Its mystery and magic includes tales of Templars, Druids, Mermaids, and fairies the Sidhe or People of the Hills, the Tuatha De Daanan. #travel #photography #lovescotland #uk #neolithic #travelblogger #highlands #visitscotland #isleofiona
It is said that all the kings of Scotland were laid to rest here. Even the famed Macbeth of Shakespeare, his body carried along Sraid Nam Marbh, the 1000 year old cobbled stretch of road that linked the Abby with the burial grounds and the landing point of Martyr’s Bay. Now just a few stones that seem to come from the organic garden down the lane. #isleofiona #traveling #iona #travel #photography #lovescotland #uk #travelblogger #highlands #visitscotland
