Approaching Iona
Image is believed to be in the public domain.

Uploader comment: The following passage is taken from this BBC article - http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/scottishhistory/earlychurch/trails_earlychurch_iona2.shtml "The pilgrims travelled to Iona in life and in death. Many of the kings of Scotland, Ireland, and even of the Vikings, were buried there. Some of the most famous Kings of Alba, from Kenneth MacAlpine to MacBeth, made their final journey there - across the sound to Iona, onto the harbour, and up the Street of the Dead to the burial ground, the Relig Oran."
