Iona Abbey

The current church dates back to the 13C and was modified in the 15C by the addition of a tower and a southern aisle where the chancel lies. Remains of the 13C Benedictine church are still visible. Take in the sculpted capitals of the arcade and the pillars at the chancel crossing, the light green communion table made of Iona marble, and the cloister outside, the twin-columned arcade of which is relatively unusual.
