  inside Fingals cave

The most famous of the caves on Staffa is Fingals cave. This is to a great extent due to the composer Mendelssohn, who was reported to have been so fascinated by the sounds of the waves in this particular cave that he went back home and wrote the Hebridean Overture. That overture is often called the Scottish Overture.
The cave is quite big and you can park a boat in it in calm waters. You can also walk into it, but be very very careful.. if you fall, it will not be a good ending.
