Coming back from Iona

Continuing my series about Scotland brings us to the journey back from Iona to Oban.  Here are some snaps of Fiannphort, some taken from the coach and some from the ferries.  The captions appear if you hover over them and tell the story.  We were blessed with good weather, when it was important.  Rain in the evenings was not too much of a hardship.

Travelling to and through Mull

I have already posted photos from the previous day’s journey to Mull and some from Iona itself.

This post is about the travelling.  The weather was perfect in the morning.  I took photos from the ferry and some from the coach on Mull.  As I was anxious not to miss the ferry for the return trip I also had time to take some snaps from the ferry port on Mull, Fionnphort, before the coach left for Craignure and the ferry to Oban.  These will have to wait for a later post.

A day trip to Iona

The day after we visited Duart Castle the weather forecast was better.  The day trip to Iona (via Mull) was running.  We were able to sit outside on the ferry after drying two seats with tissues.

A coach was waiting to take the day-trippers to Iona.  I shall write about the drive across Mull later.  Today I am posting photos from Iona.

We were blessed with good weather and decided to climb a hill rather than go round the Abbey.

On the way to the hill we passed a ruined nunnery.  The light was ideal for photography.

In September there were still plenty of flowers in bloom.
