Iona Abbey, Isle of Iona

Artist: unknown

Publisher: unknown, probably Maclachlans, Ltd.

PM: none

This is one of my favorites. Maclachlans appears to now be defunct, but was based out of Glasgow. It's interesting the abbey is referred to as a "castle." I don't think it's ever been anything other than a religious center--monastary, nunnery, etc.
