This is the second time we've been out to Staffa, and we'd go again! The basalt columnar geography is fascinating, and Fingal's Cave (the inspiration for Mendelssohn's Hebrides Overture) is other-worldly. Puffins nest here part of the year, and other birds make their homes here,...More

This is a geological wonder, very worth visiting. Spectacular scenery, boat ride is fun although prepare to get wet!

We were lucky with the weather and our visit to the three isles (Mull, Iona and Staffa) was great! The coach driver kept us entertained on the way with his tales of island life. Highly recommended!

We went with one of the boat trips from Iona. Very good crew who showed us seals, baby pups, a sea eagle and if you go before August you have the chance of seeing the puffins before they migrate. The time on Staffa was an...More

To get to Staffa you will Bob along on a smaller boat. You are looked after well. Fingal's cave is a delight it is unbelievable.

I agree with all reviews. There is a lot to see on Iona and Staffa and lots to do in Tobermory. Iona and Staffa is possible but rushed in one day. Tobermory is a drive from there. Good luck.
