  • Day 4: Mull, Iona and Staffa

    We depart and sail to Mull. On arrival in Craignure, we make our way to Fionnphort on the western tip of the island. From here, we join our cruise to see awe-inspiring Staffa.

    This tiny island – only 1/2 a mile long and 1/4 a mile wide – is made up of hexagonal columns that were formed millions of years ago by volcanic eruptions. From our vessel, we'll see Fingal's Cave which was formed by the same lava flows that created the Giant's Causeway.

    Our cruise continues to the tiny, peaceful island of Iona, where we disembark to have some free time to explore. Known as the 'Cradle of Christianity', Iona Abbey is without doubt one of the main reasons visitors flock to this remote location. We then set sail back to Fionnphort and return across Mull before sailing back to Oban.
