The Iona Community is an ecumenical Christian community working for peace and social justice, the rebuilding of community and the renewal of worship. Our literature, crafts and other products reflect this ethos.
We therefore take great care to source our products from a range of small family-run businesses, local where possible, and fair trade organisations.
We hold a core range of excellent books that include the Iona Abbey Worship Book, Wild Goose Publications (and music), Scottish history, geography and literature, and children’s books, along with Celtic jewellery, sacramental items, pilgrimage guides, clothing, maps and cards.
If there is something you would like to purchase from the shop, we are happy to post any item to wherever you are in the world! Please email [email protected] (or phone 01681 700404) for more details. Winter 2018 opening hours are noted below.
All profits benefit the work we do on Iona, Mull and the wider community.
The Iona Community Shop is located just across the road from the Iona Abbey, within the Welcome Centre building at the top of the rise, and is well-signposted. We look forward to welcoming you soon. We also sell hot and cold drinks, snacks and the famous Iona Abbey Bread and home-baking.
In 2014 the Scottish Government introduced a requirement to charge for bags. As part of our commitment to action for justice and peace and care for the environment, we fully support this requirement. The net proceeds of this charge are directed to our Access Fund.
Note: shop currently closed due to refurbishment
The shop remains closed through February due to the re-slating of the Welcome Centre roof and other renovations to the building.
We are, however, working in the shop office so our e-mail service is available – and we would be more than happy to receive your enquiries ([email protected]).
It is expected that we will be able to reopen in the first or second week of March, if all continues to progress smoothly.
March opening hours:
Tuesday–Saturday: 10:30 am–4:00pm
April–September opening hours:
Opening times will move to summer hours of business in the days before Easter.
