" Iona is a special place; few can rival it for scenic beauty, a sense of spirituality, and the undeniable weight of history which seems to seep from its very bones. Personally, I've always sought out solitude when on Iona and have always been drawn to the quieter, harder to get to places where I can tap into something intangible and attempt to turn the moment and emotion into music. Some places just have a feel about them and Iona is certainly one of them. Iona is a special place." Paul Anderson.
