Bucket List Heaven
Oct 2020 • Couples
If this isn't on your bucket list then you need to rewrite it. Yes, we were very fortunate with the weather (dry, sunny, not too much wind) and but it would be breath taking in any weather. Atmospheric, inspiring, dramatic, magnificent. I almost want not to review it so it will be left for me to visit alone.

Breathtaking
Sep 2020
This knocks the more heralded Giant's Causeway into a cocked hat.
Spectacular & magnificent. That you can walk around too (be careful) & into the mouth of the cave adds to its stunning presence. Fantastic views and very photogenic at every location. It is a must to visit if you are on Mull.
Walkways both into the cave & up tho the hillside have a handrail for support.
we took the time to sit on the rocks just outside the cave to take in the ambiance of this place & was the power of the ocean.
Do not miss this.

Simply a brilliant sight.
Clearly exceeded our expectations which were already pretty high.
We went as part of a three island tour organised by Staffa travel. Fortunately we had great weather which meant the journey there and back was also a pleasure

Stunning
Jul 2020 • Couples
I tried three times to get to Fingalks cave but failed because of bad weather. I am so pleased I kept trying. Such an incredible natural phenomenon. Staff tours gave us lots of information about how it was formed. The access is made very safe without detracting from the beauty. Highly recommend. Don’t leave without going and seeing the puffins as well though.

a memorable morning
Sep 2019
Fingals cave was on my bucket list, both geographically [the stone columns] and musically, [Mendelsshon's overture Fingal's cave, and it did not disappoint. You have to be quite steady on your feet to walk round to the cave, but the views on the crossing are stunning.

Destination well worth the Journey!!
Aug 2019
Fingal's Cave and Staffa well worth the long Journey. We were lucky and were able to land and walk down to the Cave. Just as impressive on land. The pictures do not convey the sounds and presence that is at tie cave. Don't forget to walk up the stares to the main island. Not at all friendly for handicapped but if you can, you will be rewarded with views of wild Scotland that you would see in tour books and TV. If in season, you can spot puffins that call this their home and if not, unforgettable vistas. Island is deserted and has no buildings or trees.

See it with Staffa Trips
Sep 2019 • Couples
The cave is gorgeous, like a CGI effect from a movie or Game of Thrones. It is a relatively easy island to explore, I felt most comfortable holding the ropes provided on the walkway up. It’s certainly well worth the trip, especially with the education we got about all aspects of Iona, it’s people and history. Graham identified many forms of wildlife for us as we sailed. It was just a fun, memorable day. One of my favorite memories of this trip
