Due to Coronavirus the Community Shop is closed to the general public (as is every other shop on the island with the exception of the Spar shop). We are exploring the possibility of some online trading from the shop.
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.
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.
