Escape the everyday! This little island (½ mile long and ¼ mile wide) off the west coast of Scotland looks like it may be from a different planet. Its hexagonal columns were
formed millions of years ago by volcanic eruptions and a vast blanket of lava that spread into the Atlantic Ocean. Years of waves crashing
against these columns created the magnificent Fingal’s Cave.
In 1722 when the botanist Joseph Banks highlighted the wild & natural beauty of the island. It soon became a must-see location. Famous visitors have
included Queen Victoria, Lord Tennyson, Jules Verne, Robert Louis Stevenson and John Keats; all fell under the island’s spell.
Staffa came into the care of the National Trust for Scotland in 1986, a gift from John Elliott, Jr, of New York in honour of his wife Elly’s birthday.
Staffa was designated a National Nature Reserve in 2001.
Listen to the astonishing acoustics of Fingal’s Cave, which inspired Mendelssohn to compose his Hebrides Overture.

Castle-Drop Off Point
On route we can arrange a private tour of the iconic Kilchurn Castle.
The castle’s dramatic location at the head of Loch Awe, with the peak of Ben Cruachan visible, is one of the most photographed locations in Scotland. The inscription over the
front door recognises John Earl of Breadalbane and his wife, Countess Mary Campbell, and contains the date of 1693. From the top of Kilchurn Castle, you can see the original
territory of Clan Campbell, On a tiny peninsula at the northern tip of Loch Awe surrounded by glens.
Kilchurn is for anyone who has ever dreamed of having a ruined Scottish castle all to themselves, with no tourist trinket shops around. There isn’t even an attendant at the door
of this picturesque ruin, but despite being unmanned, there are plenty of information boards throughout the castle. Climb to the top of its four-story tower for views of the
loch and surrounding hills. We then make our way over to Craignure to board the ferry back to oban then onto the drop off points.
