Staffa is presumed to have formed part of a larger island complex that includes Mull, Iona and the Treshnish islands, but now requires a boat journey which in turn provides employment for a number of crews.
There are a number of boats sailing to the Treshnish Islands and Staffa from Fionnphort/Iona and others from Tobermory.
From Iona you can take the romantic option and use the Birthe Marie, a gaff ketch rigged sailing boat. On the day we went to Iona she was on hire to a local photographer who was working from the pier and kindly provided a beautiful model for the sail past! Built as a fishing boat in Denmark in 1933, Birthe Marie fished, as far as is known, in the North Sea and the Baltic.
There are 335 days to get ready for The Societies of Photographers Convention and Trade Show at The Novotel London West, Hammersmith ...
which starts on Wednesday 20th January 2021
