Iona Heritage Centre

Iona Heritage Centre is located in a former manse in Baile Mor on the Isle of Iona (Argyll & Bute). Opened in 1990, the Centre provides a wealth of information about the secular history of the island over the last 200 years. The social and natural history of the island are revealed, with displays on the geology and flora of the area, crofting, fishing, historical events and notable visitors. The manse is a substantial building, with two wings. It was built in 1828 with Iona Parish Church, one of thirty-two Parliamentary churches built across the Highlands and Islands to a design by engineer Thomas Telford (1757 - 1834). A Tea Room offers light snacks and refreshments throughout the day. The nearby Iona Abbey Museum records the religious history of the island.
