this is the first summer I’ve not been to Iona for 20+ years. I’ve always been a landlubber when there, except for motorboat trips around the island and occasionally in a lovely sailing boat called Freya owned by a really nice guy called Mark Jardine. http://www.boattripsiona.com/.
I can however tell you two things – the tides through the Sound can be very fierce, and there are a lot of outlying rocks particularly to the west and south of the island. There are LOVELY beaches all around the western tip of the Ross of Mull. One of my ambitions, as a completely new Wayfarer owner, is to be able to sail in this area one day. I hope it goes well
