Fingal's Cave, on the island of Staffa off the west coast of Scotland (near Mull and Iona), is a sea cave formed within Tertiary basalt lava flows which have cooled to form hexagonal columns. There is a path in on one side which involves stepping from the top of one column to the next. The cave stretches 250 feet in to the rock and its roof is 70 feet above the sea. Its size and naturally arched roof, and the eerie sounds produced by the echoes of waves, give it the atmosphere of a natural…

Somewhere at 270 feet deep in the Inner Hebrides, Scotland, lies one of the greatest inspirations of Jules Verne, Queen Victoria and Pink Floyd. Being formed over 60 million years ago, the Fingal’s Cave is an unique, marvelous rock formation. Being surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, Fingal’s Cave appeared during the Paleocene epoch, which lasted about 10 million years.

Fingal's Cave is a sea cave on the uninhabited island of Staffa, in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland, part of a National Nature Reserve owned by the National Trust for Scotland. It is formed entirely from hexagonally jointed basalt columns, similar in structure to (and part of the same ancient lava flow as) the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland and those of nearby Ulva. In both cases, the cooling surface of the mass of hot lava cracked in a hexagonal pattern in a similar way to drying mud…
