Brilliant trip to Staffa and Treshinish

Great weather for cruising. Saw everything we wanted to with the bonus of sea eagles at the end. We'd recommend Turus Mara for their professionalism and friendliness.

Although we joined at Fionnphort we were able to get off at Iona and spend some time there. The caves... More

The way into the cave is a little bit slippery and there were a lot of people sitting inside the cave. The next stop was Treshnish Islands were... More

We had a great time on our trip to Staffa Island and Fingal's Cave was amazing. But what we will never forget is the amazing service we received from the Turus Mara staff. After having some car trouble the night we arrived on the Isle of Mull we ended up car-less the morning we had our boat trip booked. Our... More
