Fodor's Expert Review St. Columba Hotel

Next to cathedral, Iona, Argyll and Bute, PA76 6SL, Scotland

As befits a religious retreat, rooms in this 1846 minister's home are simple to the point of being spartan, but those in the front make up for it with glorious views across the Sound of Iona to Mull. It's an eco-friendly place, so (at least in summer) your hot water comes from the rooftop solar panels.
