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.

It is a really impressive natural formation.

The island is uninhabited, so to get there we booked a trip with staffa trips on Iona.

Access is via a narrow path along the ridge with a handrail. It's rather easy to follow and a few families with toddlers were there.

I've wanted to visit Fingal's Cave for a long time, so pleased to have done it.

Not easy getting from the boat landing to the cave, the handrail is very helpful but people are coming back the same way.

Amazing to go inside the cave.

We booked through Staffa Tours online prior to our visit. There is also an office in Oban if you prefer to book face to face. From Fionnport to Fingals cave is around 45 mins. You will be given 1 hour to explore and I think it is enough to see and do photos in cave; and also explore the ground above. We booked morning slot which was perfect for me with kids. Afternoon gets busier. You must visit while you are in western isle.

I had been planning to visit the cave for so long as it had been on my bucket list for a while. It is a must do if you are interested in nature and amazed by the creations you see. It was a long journey as I had stayed in Oban and had to take a tour to reach there by changing 2 ferries and a bus ride but it was so worth it. The Scottish weather treated me well, it was a bright sunny day. I just loved the walk inside the cave and the Isle of Staffa. There were some puffins and other wild birds spotted as well. Do visit if you get a chance.

This is an amazing place to go see. Getting to see the puffins and the cave in one trip is definitely the way to do it. The wall between the cave and the puffin site is about 30 minutes so I would suggest a longer tour if you can. The island can quickly become very busy so pack your patience.

Very impressive little island & famous cave. Had an hour on here as part of a very well run Staffa tour, and could have done with longer but still got time to picnic on the top, visit the cave, and have a couple of mini heart attacks with trying to shepherd 3 kids and a puppy safely around. Even some bloke throwing up violently on the boat on the way back couldn’t spoil this wonderful day!

We did the 3 Isles Tour which starts when you catch ferry from Oban to Craignure, then a coach and pass through Isle of Mull and then catch another smaller ferry out to Isle of Staffa where you will find Fingals Cave.
The ferry Skipper slows down so you can get a good view of the entrance to cave.

Once you arrive on the Isle of Staffa jetty, you go ashore and Fingals Cave is a lot of steps to get to the opening.
Most of the way there is a handrail to hold on to, only a short distance no handrail.
The steps have got non slip grip on most of them but you still have to be careful as some spots could still be a slippery, especially if it's been raining.

But once you are at entrance, it's a wow factor to see this amazing Cave and just how far it goes back, there is handrails and a lookout railed off just inside the cave.
The water is so clear and its amazing just being there and seeing this beautiful cave.

Well worth seeing this cave, but just a note, there is a lot of steps which sometimes can get a little slippery and if the weather turns bad and sea is a little rough good chance the tour will be cancelled, we were luckily enough for good sea day.

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
