Staffa

Back to Gallery

Staffa is a little gem set in what Chris calls "The playground" to the west of Mull.

Home of the world famous Fingal's Cave which inspired Mendelssohn to write the Hebridean Overture.

The towering basalt coulmns are often hexagonal in shape and the whole is topped off with a vermicelli of smaller curved rods of rock.

In very settled weather we can sometimes anchor or stand off while we visit the cave and its smaller "Boat Cave". Word is that there are more caves almost as interesting as Fingals but much more difficult to get to....

A favourite stopping place for a brief visit on our way to a more sheltered anchorage.
