If you look up ‘picturesque’ in the dictionary, you might well find a picture of the waterfront in Toberymory. The village’s delightful coloured houses are so pretty that this small fishing village has been the stage for several films and television programmes.

From Tobermory, you will catch a boat to the magical Treshnish Isles. Uninhabited for more than 150 years, they are home to an incredible array of plant and bird life. They’re particularly famous for the nesting puffins that go there from mid-April to early August. But if you don´t see any puffins, you're sure to see other fantastic birds, including razor bills and guillemots. You will have two hours to explore the wild beauty of the Treshnish Isles before setting sail for Staffa.

Staffa is a wonder to behold, the island´s unusual rock formation makes it look like it’s built from an enormous series of vertical columns. It is also home to the extraordinary Fingal’s cave and there’s a vast nesting colony of puffins here, that can generally be seen from mid-April to early August.

After an hour exploring Staffa, you´ll head back to Tobermory, where you’ll have approximately an hour and a half to investigate the village before returning to the ferry on the Tobermory Topper.
