Very friendly and warm hospitality from Margaret. Cosy rooms with lovely views of the sea. Delicious breakfasts. Most helpful with information and booking a restaurant and advice. Would definitely stay there again and highly recommend. Juliet

Bishops Walk is a great place for staying on Iona: warmhearted and helpful Margaret has made Bishops Walk extremely cosy and comfortable. You will never forget Margaret's splendid breakfast. No matter at what time you arrive Margaret will meet you at the ferry and take you to her beautifully situated B&B. We will never forget talking to her about what...

Margaret is a gem. Many thanks for a wonderful stay. The breakfast is superb, the location phenomenal. We had a lovely stay and I would come again. Only thing that would plus the stay is ensuite bathrooms. Thank you Margaret for your first class hospitality.

A group of 4 cyclists, we stayed with Margaret at the beginning of Sept 2016. Margaret was so helpful, giving us hints on where to go on Iona, with minimal time. Great breakfast and she made us feel very welcome in her home. Warmly recommend staying with her.

This was the second time we'd stayed with Margaret, and her standard of hospitality is the reason we came back. She is the kindest of hosts and is native to the island, taking in guests as well as running her croft which is a short walk from the Abbey. You will get a custom-cooked breakfast that will set you up...

A group of us stayed here in June. The location was perfect. Margaret went out of her way to help us in every way she could. We had great fun. We had a memorable evening of song in Margarets sitting room. The breakfast was beautifully cooked. We have great memories of our time in Margarets home

Mrs McDonald's B&B was indeed a treat. In short Margaret McDonald is hospitable to a fault; went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and had all our creature comforts. Margaret picked us up form the port and took us to her B&B - this in spite of the fact that we missed our intended ferry; she...

I was met at the pier and given an overview of what's where on Iona, as we drove up to the B and B. Ask Margaret any questions you have about the island. She has a broad scope of knowledge. Do go up Din I behind the house and explore the beaches at the North end. The Abbey has services...

We stayed here on a painting trip and Mrs MacDonald was great fun and very accommodating. Bishops Walk is ideally situated for the Abbey and the North and East Beaches and makes for a very relaxing stay.
