A regular boat trip from Mull / Ulva ferry in summer visits the Treshnish Isles , now uninhabited . This gives a great opportunity to view seabirds including puffins and spectacular scenery . Stout footwear and clothing required ; a fantastic trip

Unfortunately, the puffins had already left the island preparing for the oncoming winter. I must admit missing out on the popularity of this ‘Puffin Therapy’, where one can sit within a few feet of these iconic little Sea Parrots, was a bitter disappointment. Nevertheless, the...More

Coupled a visit to this island with another to Staffa to see Fingals Cave. Arranged by Staffa Tours this was a 6 hour plus day trip costing around £60 for an adult, and worth every penny. Went to Staffa first and stopped for an hour...More

Once in lifetime visit experience - incredible to see the puffins nesting in the rabbit holes and totally oblivious to humans nearby. We visited from a friend's cruising yacht and were able to be there before the trip boats arrived so we had the island...More

Spending time in close company with wild animals that have no fear of humans does something special for the soul, and they don't come much more adorable than the puffins on Lunga. Our tour with Turus Mara was a highlight of our 2-week trip to...More

Sweet, slightly goofy puffins run all over the cliffs of the isle, but you need to be prepared if you're going to enjoy your visit. The seas can be rough and folks do get seasick on the crossing. If you're prone to seasickness, take precautions....More

The puffins apparently depart Lunga at the beginning of August so it seems unlikely they would be there in the numbers normally experienced during the breeding season (April to July).
