The magical island of Staffa

Located six miles from the Isle of Mull, the uninhabited island of Staffa has got to be seen to be believed.  Its incredible prehistoric appearance makes you feel that you have stepped back into another age.  A volcanic island, Staffa is best known for its many caves including the renowned Fingals cave, as well as the basalt columns with their wonderful geometric shapes. The island is also a haven for wildlife, but unfortunately an hour’s visit was too short to allow me to take full advantage.  If you ever have the opportunity a visit to Staffa is an absolute must.
