Fingles Cave

We would love to visit Fingles Cave during our trip to Scotland. Has anyone been there? I'm looking for a tour that would go there from Oban--the only one I can find goes to Mull, Iona and Staffa. We would like to go on a shorter trip--preferable only to Staffa.

Yes, I visited Fingal's Cave (note spelling) ten years ago on 9/11. I was staying at Tobermory on Mull and drove down to Fionnphort where I took a boat tour that included both Staffa, Fingal's Cave and Iona. We stopped long enough on Staffa to walk over to the Cave and then to sit and enjoy a beautiful day on Staffa. In the afternoon the boat took us to Iona where I was able to visit the Abbey and the nunnery ruins. I caught a ferry back to Fionnphort. Alternatively, there are tours offered out of Oban. So you don't need to drive to Fionnphort. Here's a link to read about what available. There are lots of different types of boat tours from Oban. Pam
