Pillars are made for rescue or build a highest building but that all are made of mud, clay, stone or some thing else. But nature create some wonder for human. As we see at the wonderful but mysteric island of staffa. Where the whole island made of pillars. Staffa from the Old Norse for stave or pillar island, 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 lies about 10 kilometers west of the Isle of Mull. The area is 33 hectares and the highest point is 42 meters above sea level. About similar nature pattern to Giants Causeway in North Ireland, Staffa Pillars is really amazing!
