Single shot Scotland - Staffa at sunset video

52b26ff1-f87f-49bf-8078-9cc85ff7b2f1

VisitScotland has launched its Single Shot Scotland video series with Staffa at Sunset.

The Isle of Staffa is an island in the Inner Hebrides, Argyll & Bute, which is known for its distinctive basalt columns and coastal caves. It is the location of Fingal's Cave, which inspired Mendelssohn's Hebridean Overture.

Staffa has been admired by many thousands of tourists over the years, including Sir Walter Scott, Queen Victoria and J W Turner. It is cared for by National Trust for Scotland.

VisitScotland is asking the public to vote for the site they'd next like to see featured in Single Shot Scotland. You can comment on their YouTube page.
