|you probably can't make it out but there is a small castle tower (ruins) in amongst those trees|
Then we rode in a coach across this beautiful island (while being informed and entertained by our driver/guide) to catch another small ferry to the gorgeous Isle of Iona. We had almost 3 hours on Iona, most of which we spent walking and enjoying the views and scenery.

Just before catching the ferry back to Mull, we quickly toured the abbey on Iona which is on the spot where St. Columba and his followers built a church and established a Catholic community way back in the mid-6th century.

We at dinner on the ferry because we needed to attend Mass that evening, which we did at St. Columba's Cathedral in Oban.
A bit of relaxing in our room and welcome sleep!
