Updated: Jan 2

Fingal's Cave is a must-visit if you're ever near the west coast of Scotland. You won't believe the wordly experience you feel when walking along the basalt columns, or peering into the cave.

Fingal's Cave is hauntingly beautiful and recently they've installed new paths along the top of the cliffs. According to the guides who operate the tours to Fingal's Cave, they recommend sticking to these paths in order to protect the island from erosion and the wildlife.

Amazing sight! There is a fun hike to the cave, which you can enter for a short bit. There are lots of visitors at each moment and there's only one path, so be prepared for that. – Google Review

The whole island somehow seems completely surreal, and for Fingal's Cave, all we can say is that you need to visit yourself, because the photo's don't do the place justice. If there's a thing like magic, this is the place where you can feel it!
