In December 2004 the St. Columba Hotel was purchased by a small group of Iona based people who came together to form St. Columba Hotel Ltd.
Local ownership and involvement is still an important part of our overall vision: to enhance the experience of visitors to Iona as well as the life of the island.
We see ourselves as guardians of these buildings and the hospitality that they offer, recognising that to a great number of people the hotel, and this island, offer a very valuable space for peace and re-creation.
The St Columba has a rich history which is detailed in one of the stories on the right of this page. There you will also find more information on the present owners.
