Cars driving you nuts? Want an old-style camping trip on an idyllic island? Retreat to the tiny Isle of Iona in the Inner Hebrides, an ancient isle full of history where kings were laid to rest, monks wandered in scholarly contemplation and which is still known today as a place of peace and tranquillity. Cars are allowed for resident islanders only (if you’re driving, you can leave your car at the ferry port in Fionnphort), but it’s easy to get about under your own steam, as the island is only three and a half miles long.
From the ferry, it’s a twenty-minute walk to Isle of Iona Campsite on the west of the island, a working croft with first-rate views, roomy grass tent pitches and good facilities alongside its back to basics natural vibe: there are three loos, two showers, a firepit and barbeque area, and sleeping bags/roll mats available for hire for those who prefer to travel light.
Foodwise, there’s a Spar on the island for picking up groceries, tipples and other essentials, with two hotels, a pub and a tea room serving up meals and snacks.
No cars are allowed on the Island of Iona.
