Treshnish Isles and Staffa Tour 

A fantastic trip full of heritage and amazing wildlife.

From Craignure, its a short scenic transfer to the little port of Ulva Ferry, from there; it's around 55 minutes to reach Staffa Island. En route you'll pass the historic island of Inch Kenneth and Livingstone's Cave. Rounding the island of Little Colonsay, the cake shaped view of Staffa comes into view. Basalt columns soar up from sea level creating an impressive sight. Once you land on Staffa, you can enjoy time ashore to explore the Causeway and walk inside the natural rock cathedral of Fingal's Cave, source of mythology, musical inspiration and a destination for millions of travellers through the ages. Watch our video of this tour.

From there, it's off to Treshnish Isles, specifically Lunga where there are thousands of very tame puffins, ready to entertain visitors. You'll also visit Harp Rock on Lunga, home to several thousand noisy birds including guillemots, razorbills and kittiwakes. On a clear day, panoramic views from the top of Lunga can include Tiree, Coll, the Cullins, Small Isles, Ardnamurchan, Mull, the Paps of Jura and even Skerryvore Lighthouse.

For lovers of
Nature, wildlife, bird life, geology, history.
