I always wanted to visit Staffa which is an island of the Inner Hebrides in Argyll and Bute, Scotland. I had read up on the island and had seen magnificent photos of it in Scottish Travel books. I believe even queen Victoria visited here.
This unique island is 33 hectares (82 acres) and the highest point is 42 metres (138 ft) above sea level. Much bigger than I had originally thought and I was surprised to read that it used to be inhabited previously.
There are boat trips from Oban, Ulva Ferry and Fionnphort on Mull, and Iona which allows visitors to view the caves and the puffins that nest on the island between May and July. I visited this island in June 2017 with a boat from Ulva which promised a puffin therapy.
We walked to the famous Fingal's Cave known for its natural acoustics. I was told that It became known as Fingal's Cave after the eponymous hero of an epic poem by 18th-century Scots poet- historian James Macpherson.
