Prepare to travel a fair distance by boat to get to this magical island and hope that the crossing is on the calm side if you have a problem with motion sickness (or carry medicine as a precaution). Other than that, just sit back and...More

We were lucky to get a sunny day with little showers. What a wonderful experience. Fingals cave is a MUST visit. Nature in its most divine form. Unforgettable experience

My travel to Fingal's Cave was amazing. The view was stunning and breathtaking. The rocks can get slippery so be sure not to rush. We saw little jellyfish in the sea foam inside the cave. I liked to look for little snails in the rocks...More

I had mixed feelings about my experiences, I have to admit.  First, the positives.  We were very lucky to arrive at Fionnphort on Mull in almost perfect weather: the sun was out, the sea relatively calm and skies blue.  Maybe a few more dramatic clouds...More

Absolutely loved this. Just the natural beauty of the spot and the various formation of basalt columns were amazing . Hope for a good day as the weather in the highlands is challenging
