What a beautiful island and what amazing wildlife. The puffins are not to be missed. We visited with Staffa Tours.

Unfortunately, the puffins had already left the island preparing for the oncoming winter. I must admit missing out on the popularity of this ‘Puffin Therapy’, where one can sit within a few feet of these iconic little Sea Parrots, was a bitter disappointment. Nevertheless, the...More

Coupled a visit to this island with another to Staffa to see Fingals Cave. Arranged by Staffa Tours this was a 6 hour plus day trip costing around £60 for an adult, and worth every penny. Went to Staffa first and stopped for an hour...More

Once in lifetime visit experience - incredible to see the puffins nesting in the rabbit holes and totally oblivious to humans nearby. We visited from a friend's cruising yacht and were able to be there before the trip boats arrived so we had the island...More
