Wonderful day out to Staffa Island as part of the Three Island Tour with West Coast Tour company. Lousy start to the day with bad weather, but the experience more than made up for it with stunning views and outlooks. Will definitely make a return...More

Although the short boat ride was rather bumpy, my wife is always seasick, it was great to see Staffa and Fingal's cave after 34 years since I was a student and visited it. With three episodes of lava extrusion from a volcano; forming quite different...More

A bucket list place to see that is akin to the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland. A little more difficult to get to. We went on a boat from StaffaTours for a 3 hour cruise. (sound familiar) Due to the time of year we didn't...More

Rock formations and steps very well set out for visitors. Ferry very helpful, on reaching Fingals cave played Mendelssohns overture, very moving!

Enjoyed the trip out with Staffa tours. They pick you up at either Fionnphort or Iona piers. Nice trip over taking about 35 mins each way and a good hour on the island itself. Only dissappointing thing was access into Fingal's cave had been stopped...More

You can get to the island with Staffa Tours or Staffa Trips; the former seem to have slightly bigger, but busier boats. The itineraries seem the same. The 40-50 minute journey means you get the chance to spot seals, sea birds and possibly other wildlife....More

We took a Staffa Tour and had a brilliant time. The isle is full of charm. Definitely worth the long boat ride from Tobermory.

Hello there, the cave was closed supposedly for safety reasons, but we did manage to walk right inside the cave with no issues, there is a bit of erosion but its perfectly safe with care
