Hebrides

Staffa National Nature Reserve

Volcanic rock columns are home to black guillemots, fulmars, puffins and the magical Fingal’s Cave

Things to do

NATURE SPOTTING

Experience the amazing sounds in the natural temple of Fingal’s Cave and then, in summer, watch the antics of the puffins that nest in burrows on top of Staffa’s high cliffs. If you sit patiently, they will come right up to you.

Walk to the highest point of Staffa and enjoy the panorama of Hebridean islands in a sparkling sea. Remember to keep your eyes open for whales, dolphins or basking sharks!
