Visiting Iona

Iona has been a place of welcome and hospitality for centuries and as restrictions begin to ease we are looking forward to being able to offer that welcome and hospitality again. Travel in the time of Coronavirus will involve a lot of trust and responsibility on all sides. We expect visitors will want to know what new measures businesses here are implementing so that they can feel confident, relaxed and enjoy their time here. We also hope that visitors will play their part by respecting and following guidance and regulations. This will help our community to feel confident and relaxed about being a welcoming place once again.

Therefore, we expect visitors to do the following:

  • Strictly follow all Scottish Government guidance concerning your trip — please do not come if you should be self-isolating because you have symptoms or are a contact of someone who has tested positive; or if you are in a shielding group.
  • Strictly follow all Scottish Government guidance regarding accommodation — particularly noting that currently only one household is permitted in self catering accommodation and second homes.
  • Strictly follow all hygiene and physicial distancing rules when you’re on the island — including keeping 2m distance from others. hand and cough hygiene and mandatory use of face coverings on public transport, and in our shops.

Please check for further details on current guidance, regulations and expected behaviour, and for further details on the services and facilities which will be available to visitors this year.
