About Baile Mor (Iona)Baile Mor (or "Big Town") is the ferry terminal for the island of Iona. The Island of Iona lies a mile off the western tip of Mull. The Fionnphort (Mull) to Iona ferry operates a frequent service across the Sound of Iona during the middle of the day when day visitors from Oban are likely to need to cross. Early or late ferries are available but not as frequent.
Iona, the island of St Columba, was gifted to the National Trust in 1979 and has a population of about 90. It has been a place of pilgrimage for 1500 years, and today has over 100,000 visitors each year.
