Iona is a small island in the Inner Hebrides off the Ross of Mull on the western coast of Scotland.
The island was the site of a highly important monastery, during the Early Middle Ages. According to tradition the monastery was founded in 563 by the monk Columba, who had been exiled from his native Ireland.


Land of the sheeps (and shepherds). Nice and concerning the weather most probably very authentic. VG.

Very typical and beautiful. Unfortunately most of the time no country for friends of "Fernsicht". Cheers, Martin

Dear friends, in this case the main problem was the wind, as you can see by examining the bent grass. I am 1.85m tall and weighing nearly 90 Kg, but at the top of the Dun (only 101m), which is the highest point on the island of Iona, I had to squat, otherwise the wind carried me away.

That's why the Scottish mountain weather forecast has an explicit section "effect of wind", basically assessing the ability to stand upright on ridges,and sometimes on lower ground as here. Btw, hurricane force gales predicted for tomorrow in the NW. I hope that May will be calmer.
