STAFFA: THE PILLAR ISLAND

Staffa is an island of the Inner Hebrides in Argyll and Bute, Scotland. The Vikings gave it this name as its columnar basalt reminded them of their houses, which were built from vertically placed tree-logs.  Staffa's strange structure is due to its volcanic origins, similar to the Giant's Causeway in the United Kingdom.
