Staffa and Treshnish Isles Wildlife Tours
Visit Ulva and Staffa from Oban

Ulva and Staffa Trips are now live to book on the Website.

Exciting news. Visitors are once again invited to join our day trip from Oban visiting both the Community owned Island of Ulva AND the awe inspiring Isle of Staffa and Fingal’s Cave.

This is an absolute cracker of a day trip!

Catch the 9.55am ferry from Oban to Craignure where the Turus Mara minibuses are waiting to provide transport across Mull.  Travel is via the beautiful surroundings of the Loch na Keal National Scenic Area, passing beneath Ben More, the last island Munro (mountain over 3000 feet). Then turn the last high mountain corner and Ulva beckons you on down.

Isle of Ulva

On arrival at the Ulva Ferry terminus you catch the small but perfectly formed ferry to Ulva, run for many years by the island resident Munro family.

Approximately two and a half hours gives bags of time to investigate Ulva’s varied woodland walks, shoreline and mountain trails. Other highlights on Ulva include the early nineteenth century Telford Church and Manse, Sheila’s Cottage museum and the fabulous, volunteer managed, Ulva Garden. Just be sure to allow time to sample the excellent menu at the Boathouse Restaurant situated right at the pierhead so very handy for the return crossing to join the Turus Mara passenger boat to Staffa at 2pm.

On to Staffa and a visit to Fingal’s Cave. The cave is approximately 230 feet long and is 60 feet high and 50 feet wide at the entrance. The Rock is hexagonal columnar basalt formed due to slow cooling of the lava about 60 million years ago (relatively young for a rock!) On good days follow in many famous footsteps along the causeway and imagine you can hear the first few bars of Mendelssohn’s Overture in the eternal surge of the sea.
