Sunday Snapshot: Puffins on the Isle of Mull

Posted By in Travel Photography | 5 comments

Today’s Sunday Snapshot comes from Rebecca Pattee, a 30-something who lives in Seattle and blogs at awayfromtheoffice.com,  which is aimed at inspiring office workers to explore the world.

puffins on the Isle of Mull

“I booked a tour of the Treshnish Isles, departing from Fionnphort on the Isle of Mull. Our first stop of the day was Lunga, home to thousands of puffins and other sea birds. I squealed like a kid when I glimpsed a puffin flying over the ocean. Once on land, I climbed up a steep cliff and saw hundreds of puffins flying, building nests and just hanging out. I was able to get pretty close to the puffins since they aren’t scared of people. It was the most memorable part of my recent trip to Scotland by far.”
