Columba’s Bay is a pretty pebble beach on the southern coast of the Isle of Iona, Argyll & The Isles
This charming bay is said to be where St Columba landed on Iona in AD 563, and went on to set up his monastery on the island.
The pebbles found on Columba’s Bay are beautiful - look out for the slivers of greenstone known as ‘Columba's Tears’. Spot seals, sunbathe on the grass and enjoy a picnic.
To reach St Columba’s Bay, follow the directions to Camas Cuil an t-Saimh, then follow the machair and path that goes over the hill.
