British Heritage Travel reader Andrew Fyfe wins our April photo competition with these haunting images of the Isle of Iona and Iona Abbey, a place of Christian pilgrimage located on the West Coast of Scotland.
"Traveling from Edinburgh all the way to the western side of Scotland took some time. It was about two and a half hours by car to Oban, then a one-hour ferry crossing to Mull, followed by an hour's drive to the west of Mull and then, finally, a ten-minute ferry to Iona--but it was all worth it! Saint Columba came from Ireland to Iona and founded the abbey, and from there he brought Christianity to Scotland. It's a very peaceful, calm place to be, this holy little spot in the Hebrides. Right at the very edge of the country! All the Scottish kings are buried there too, so anyone interested in political history or religious history--and the two so often intertwine here--should go!"
