Iona is also called “Icolmkill,” or simply “I.” It
derives its interest wholly from its ancient ecclesiastical
remains, popularly attributed to St Columba, who
landed at Iona in 563, and erected a monastery; this,
from 795 to 986, was exposed to the ravages of the
Danes. A new monastery, as well as a nunnery, was
founded by the Benedictines in 1203, and the remains
are chiefly of that date. They consist of the cathedral
church of St Mary, the nunnery, several small chapels,
a building called the Bishop’s House, and 2 fine crosses
(St Martin’s and Maclean’s). The chapel of St Oran is
supposed to date from the 11th century; the burying-
ground attached to it, said to contain the remains of
many Scottish, four Irish, and eight Norwegian kings,
possesses a great number of monumental stones. The
ruins were repaired and partially restored by the Duke
of Argyll (the proprietor of the island) in 1874-5.
