A real feeling of adventure and some incredible rock formations to be seen. Well worth the effort. Depending on the time of year you visit you can also climb the steep steps to see the Puffins.

A must-see experience. The cave is unbelievable, a real natural wonder. Staffa has colonies of various seabirds, Puffins, and other species. Good walking footwear recommended, the tracks can be steep and rough.

I didn't see this before now. So sorry. I believe you do need to purchase tickets in advance. The tour leaves very early in the morning.
