The Bay at the Back of the Ocean

Bay at the Back of the Ocean, is on the west of Iona.  From the ferry, turn left and follow the shore road which eventually bears right up the hill. This area is a great place to spot the Corncrakes which nest in the iris beds.

At the end of the road go through the gate, over the machair and Camus Cuil an t-Saimh stretches as far as the eye can see.

The English translation is Bay at the Back of the Ocean.   Click images to enlarge
