Boat trip to isle of Staffa from Fionnphort on Mull. Just time to bag the great trig after seeing Fingal's cave and the puffins! Great memorable day out.

First location logged on this site. Day trip in a RIB after the Tiree Festival. Introduced to 'trigging' by another member, then went on to do the four points on Tiree :-)

Wow! ..Interest and Scenery? ..why has no-one told me Staffa was so Marvellous before? Bagged in rare Company again... Basalt columns, Fingal's Cave, Tsunami waves walloping Rob? Brilliant Bag! and a Vanessa to boot! :D

Staffa ..Absolutely Fabulous and Cracking Company. :D

One of four islands visited today on an eventful trip from Fionnphort with Coastal Connections. Extra special for peregrinus as it was his final Scottish island pillar. Fingal's Cave did not disappoint. I'd easily be tempted to return, though what I'd really like to do would be an overnighter.

Peregrinus, pretty pleased, with his Scottish island pillar puzzle now complete

Trip with staffatours, excellent 2 hours on Lunga but pm swell too high to land on Staffa: a wave broke over the wee pier while we watched! Clear view of cylindrical pillar from south, a few hundred meters back, next to cairn. Proper visit pending...

Pillar visible from south seen from boat, need to be a few hundred metres from island

A birthday treat with Paul - a trip to Staffa and Lunga. I had long wanted to visit these islands and didn't think I'd manage to get to the trig as well as see Fingal's Cave. Fantastic weather and such a beautiful, awe-inspiring location!

I read the FB number on this circular pillar but had forgotten it by the time I got back to a pencil! I think it is 10371.

A calm hot sunny day on Staffa--how common is that??
