Augustinian nunnery
Augustinian nunnery
The nunnery on Iona was founded around 1200 by Ranald, son of the famous Norse-Celtic warrior, Somerled. Known locally as "An Eaglais Dhubh" ("the black church"), the name being derived from the colour of the nuns' habits, it was one of two Augustinian nunneries established in Scotland, the other being in Perth.

The photo is taken from inside the cloister garden which was enlarged to the south and west in the fifteenth century.
