Sue Rentoul and Gus Brooks : The Sound of Iona is only a mile across and while crossing on the ferry it looks so tempting - a swim with a purpose, one island to another .
AN interesting and challenging swim but should be accompanied by a boat Mark Jardine came with us - see related website for information - and done at slack tide.
There is a car park in Fionnphort.
sometimes there is a strong current in the Sound) and when the weather allows! And the sea is cold, about 13�C.
