Rent A Cottage In Scotland

Thursday, January 18, 2007


The inhabitants of Iona have a belief that the shrine of St. Columba will yet be restored to its ancient, desolate glory, and, in support of the notion, quote no less credible authority than that of Columba himself, expressed in the following lines:

In Iona of my heart, Iona of my love,
Instead of the voice of monks, shall be the lowing of cattle;
But ere the world come to an end,
Iona shall be as it was.
