Fingal’s Cave Staffa

October 1, 2012

Mull, Staffa and Iona.

Staffa is a remarkable little island, located south-west off the isle of Ulva and halfway between the Ross of Mull and the Treshnish Isles. The island, small as it is with only 33 hectares, was once inhabited in the 1700s by as much as 16 people but nowadays seabirds and tourists have taken over their place. The island with it remarkable volcanic stone formations and the famous Fingal’s cave has inspired many a writer, musician, artists ad poets a like.
