Staffa, Inner Hebrides

This is a small island of the Inner Hebrides.

It is worth seeing on any tours of Scotland.


The island has magnificent cliffs and caves formed of columnar basalt.

They were shaped by the cooling process associated with volcanic action.

It lies off the West coast of Mull.


It was unknown to the outside world until 1772.

A party of scientists called there on the way to Iceland and discovered the island.


The island has been uninhabited for more than a century.

But with the start of the steamboat trips in the 1820s it was admired by countless visitors.


Staffa is an irregular oval shape of about 70 acres in superficial area.

It is 135 feet high at its highest point.
