DescriptionFor over 400 years the bìrlinn or galley would have been a common sight in the seas of the Western isles and the Iona bìrlinn designs are taken from the medieval grave slabs of the Clan Chiefs, found in Iona's Reilig Odhrain. It was believed that the galley carried the Clan Chief's soul to 'Tir-nan-Og', the land of eternal youth.
