Subject: Pilgrims and puffins This was a tour I have been wanting to do for some time and I was not disappointed. The guide was Ross, and once I knew he was the guide I knew I were in good hands. Iíve travelled with him before and he is an excellent guide and a great photograper. The tour started in very wet conditions but it got better the closer we got to Mull. We stayed 3 nights in the beautiful little harbour town Tobermory. All though Mull has a lot of great scenery the real highlight of the tour was the trip to Iona and Staffa. We were very lucky with the weather that day and it was lovely to see Iona in sunshine. A visit to the abbey was interesting and there also seemed to be some pilgrims visiting the island. The boattrip to Staffa was nice and the sea was very calm. The boat actually managed to sail into Fingalís Cave, something we were told only happens around 20 of 400 times. So we were lucky to have this experience. Once we had landed on the island, the walk to the cave was nice and it was great to listen to the sound of the sea crushing in and see the colours inside. No wonder Mendelssohn was inspired when he visited! And then there were the puffins an absolutely wonderful experience. The birds were so adorable and cute and we got very close. To just sit there on the hills watching the birds was just awesome! This tour is one I wouldnít mind doing again one day. Thanks again to Ross for another great tour. Heís a brilliant guide.
