What to see in Staffa

Staffa, an islet in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland, is renowned for its breathtaking geological formations and captivating natural beauty. A visit to Staffa, particularly near its port, is a journey into a landscape that feels both ancient and timeless.

The most famed attraction of Staffa is undoubtedly Fingal's Cave. This sea cave, known for its remarkable natural acoustics and striking basalt columns, resembles a cathedral-like structure, with hexagonal columns forming a natural walkway just above the water level. Fingal’s Cave has been an inspiration to many, most notably to composer Felix Mendelssohn, who composed the Hebrides Overture, also known as Fingal's Cave, after his visit. The cave's unique structure and the sound of the waves create an almost mystical atmosphere. Boat trips around the island offer visitors a chance to see the cave and the island's incredible columnar basalt formations from the water, a perspective that highlights the grandeur of this natural wonder.

Another notable activity near Staffa is wildlife watching. The waters around Staffa and the nearby Treshnish Isles are rich in marine life. The area is a habitat for a variety of seabirds, including puffins, guillemots and razorbills, which can be seen nesting and feeding along the cliffs, particularly during the breeding season from April to August. Puffins, with their colourful beaks and clown-like appearance, are particularly popular with visitors. Staffa’s waters are also frequented by marine mammals such as seals, dolphins and occasionally minke whales. The experience of watching these animals in their natural habitat is both thrilling and humbling, emphasising the pristine and unspoiled nature of Staffa and its surroundings.

Exploring the Isle of Iona, a short boat ride from Staffa, provides a contrasting experience to the wild and rugged landscape of Staffa. Iona is a small, tranquil island known for its spiritual significance and historic Iona Abbey, one of Scotland's most sacred sites. The abbey was founded by St. Columba in 563 and has been a site of uninterrupted prayer and worship for centuries. The island has been a destination for pilgrims and visitors seeking peace and spiritual renewal. Besides the abbey, Iona offers stunning beaches, crystal-clear waters and gentle walks around the island, making it a peaceful retreat and a stark contrast to the dramatic scenery of Staffa.
