More abbey 

Stone pattern in floor


Prayer stones – the info board states that they would have held marble stones which pilgrims rotated while saying a prayer. The world was supposed to come to an end when the stone was worn through. Iona has been a place of pilgrimage almost since its founding, but Abbey restoration only took place in 19th & 20th century, with Iona community coming in 1970s.
