Very friendly and warm hospitality from Margaret. Cosy rooms with lovely views of the sea. Delicious breakfasts. Most helpful with information and booking a restaurant and advice. Would definitely stay there again and highly recommend. Juliet

Bishops Walk is a great place for staying on Iona: warmhearted and helpful Margaret has made Bishops Walk extremely cosy and comfortable. You will never forget Margaret's splendid breakfast. No matter at what time you arrive Margaret will meet you at the ferry and take you to her beautifully situated B&B. We will never forget talking to her about what it means to live on Iona, Scotland's holy island.

Margaret is a gem. Many thanks for a wonderful stay. The breakfast is superb, the location phenomenal. We had a lovely stay and I would come again. Only thing that would plus the stay is ensuite bathrooms. Thank you Margaret for your first class hospitality.

Room Tip: Front room upstairs have the views of the sea. Downstairs back room is a view of Dun I.

We just spent 2 nights here.It is a lovely house in a good location.Margaret is the loveliest person,so kind and welcoming.She picked us up from the ferry and took us back when it was time to leave.She also gave good advice for getting around the island,and offered to take us to the place where we were having dinner and come back for us when we had eaten when it looked like the weather was going to be bad.She also let me use the house phone when I couldn't get a mobile signal to phone home and when it looked like the ferry was going to be cancelled,she was so helpful in finding information for us.
Breakfast was huge ,with loads of choice, all freshly cooked to order.We could make tea and coffee in the kitchen whenever we wanted.
All in all it was a pleasure to stay here.If you're looking for 5 star hotel facilities you might want to look elsewhere,but if you want a kind and welcoming home from home,then this is the place for you!

A group of 4 cyclists, we stayed with Margaret at the beginning of Sept 2016. Margaret was so helpful, giving us hints on where to go on Iona, with minimal time. Great breakfast and she made us feel very welcome in her home. Warmly recommend staying with her.

Room Tip: Both rooms we stayed in had a view out to sea..
