Leaving Wales, we approached one of the spots that made me decide to take the cruise: Iona. Iona is a tiny island (about 1 mile wide by 4 miles long) off the west coast of Scotland, with a resident population of about 200 people, according to our guide. Here it is as we approached it. The photo gallery for this post is Iona.
Iona doesn’t have a port in the normal sense. Its landing facility is a concrete ramp slanting up out of the water, used for the inter-island ferry, and for tenders from cruise ships like Le Boréal. Here are some of us in the tender, heading for shore.
