Spouting cave, Iona

We circumnavigated Iona in an anticlockwise direction. We rounded its south west headland to discover a wonderland of stacks, islands, tidal channels hidden bays and caves.

This cave was deep and had amazing colours in the walls. There was white shell sand below its turquoise water...

...and a little sandy beach right at the back of the cave.

The next cave is called "spouting cave". In the gentle swell it was more like a kettle than a cave but you can imagine what it would be like in an Atlantic storm.
