Fionnphort (C) 2014 by Debi Bradford
Fionnphort on the Isle of Mull. We crossed the Sound of Iona by ferry, leaving here for the Isle of Iona.
Hill of the Angels (C) 2014 by Debi Bradford
Isle of Iona, Scotland. St. Columba liked to pray on this hill while the sun set into the sea. The story goes that a young monk followed St. Columba one evening, curious as to what he was doing on said hill. The young monk watched “angels of light” ascending and descending upon St. Columba so the hill became known as the Hill of the Angels. Lots of supernatural activity has been attributed to this site, accounting for a lot of both Christian and Pagan celebrations according to the Iona website.
Window and rock (C) 2014 by Debi Bradford
Walking around inside the Iona Abbey, ferns growing wild upon its inner walls, breathing Celtic air, enjoying the scent of ancient stones there was this window and rock. This abbey was founded by St. Columba in 563AD.
Let that sink in. I’ll wait.
Black face sheep (C) 2014 by Debi Bradford
There are several kinds of sheep that wander freely (or not) around Scotland and its islands. The black face sheep is the most resilient and hardy, so we were informed.
Baile Mor (C) by Debi Bradford
Of course, I had to take some photos of the beach. Here we found nice sea glass and some pottery. Rocks may or may not have been brought home.
Somewhere in Mull (C) 2014 by Debi Bradford
No idea where but I do know we were somewhere on the Isle of Mull racing back to catch another ferry to the mainland. I got quite good at taking photographs from a moving vehicle.
I’ve lots to share so hold on tight.
I’ll be back.
