Fingal’s Cave and Staffa
Island in Isle of Mull
Staffa is an island of the Inner Hebrides in Argyll and Bute, Scotland. The Vikings gave it this name as its columnar basalt reminded them of their houses, which were built from vertically placed tree-logs. It is famous for the sea cave Fingal’s Cave which is known for its natural acoustics and basalt columns, in fact the entire island features incredible basalt columns. If you’ve been to the Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland, you will find it quite similar but in an island kind of way.
If you are visiting between May and August, you will also be able to see the puffins.
Visiting Staffa island
You will need to book a boat tour lasting 30 and 45 minutes to get there from Tobermory or Fionnphort. If you also want to visit Iona on the same day, you should take it from Fionnphort.
