Bishop’s walk was recommended to me by friends. It sounded ideal for my planned three night stay so I rang the owner, Mrs Margaret MacDonald, and made a booking. She did explain the double room I would be in had no sea view. Fine by me. Why anyone would want a sea view when surrounded by water I fail to... More

Margaret McDonald is the consummate host. The review form forced me to pick a time for when we traveled but didn't include the option for March/April 2013, so I picked a year later. We actually stayed with her for Holy Week in 2013, which began at the end of March, so lots of things on the island weren't up and... More

I stayed with Margaret for two nights. Her Bed and Breakfast was very cosy and welcoming, and I enjoyed beautiful views of the sea from my bedroom (I was in a twin bedroom at the back of the house). The house is ideally situated, being very close to two beautiful beaches and only a ten minute walk away from the... More

I stayed with Margaret for 8 nights. Her breakfasts were amazing (and enormous!), the location of the house is fantastic, her knowledge of Iona was very helpful, and she is very kind and hospitable. I would recommend her B&B to anyone. Hope I have the chance to stay there again sometime soon :)

Bishops Walk bed and breakfast is a relaxing place to stay for either a short break or longer if you are lucky enough to do so. It is very clean and comfortable where the delightful owner of the property Mrs Margaret McDonald makes you feel very much at home and sets you up for the day with a very... large... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at The Bishops House. Margaret is a lovely lady, and very hospitable. Food was great and very comfortable surroundings. I very much enjoyed chats with Margaret on the way to the kitchen - she made me feel very welcome.

Had a great 2 night stay with Margaret in June and thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our stay with her. Her knowledge, insights and honesty about Island life were very much appreciated and her breakfasts tremendous. It was a privilege to share Margaret's home with her for a brief but memorable period. Thanks

Margaret met us from the ferry, gave us a tour of the village, and welcomed us into her home. She was lovely and friendly, the room was very comfortable, and the bathroom, right next door. I'm sure the sea view was fabulous (shame about the mist - other reviewers have talked about the hill, we didn't see it!) Still despite... More

I had 4 wonderful days at Margarets house - so close to the Abbey and the beautiful beaches in the south end of the Island. Very recommendable indeed. And Iona itself is the most beautiful place in the world. I will come back for sure.

I have been to Margaret McDonald's Bishop Walk B&B now 3 times and EVERY time I have been very pleased with the friendly welcome, the cleanliness and superb cooking, I even visited Margaret once when I stayed on Iona but was not able to stay at her B&B. I can highly recommend this B&B and can see no reason why... More
