Staffa is an island found 10 km west of the Isle of Mull.
The small island has been attracting visitors for centuries, with people coming to marvel at the imposing dark columns of volcanic rock that make up the island's cliffs and to see Fingal's Cave, a huge sea cave formed by the constant battering of the Atlantic Ocean.
A rich mix of seabirds, including guillemots, razorbills and puffins, make the island their summer home.
