Iona Vehicle Permit

Iona is subject to a "Prohibition of Vehicles" Order that controls the type of vehicles allowed onto the Island.

This Order was first introduced in 1978 to ensure the preservation of this popular island.

Due to an increase in the numbers of complaints and damage to the road infrastructure on the Isle of Iona, the Traffic Regulation Order is now being strictly enforced.

There is a free car park with capacity for approximately 140 vehicles close to the Columba Centre and another car park at the Fionnphort Pier which has capacity for approximately 70 vehicles and is charged at £1 per hour.

Iona is a small island and it’s easy to get around on foot. The Abbey, for example, is only 10 minutes' walk from the pier. Bikes can be hired on the island, and there is a local taxi available to help the weary or heavily laden. If you are coming to stay, many accommodation providers offer a pick up from the pier if you let them know in advance when you will be arriving – please check with them directly.
