small uninhabited island near Iona. Its chief attraction is a sea cavern known as Fingal's Cave which has attracted vistors since the late 18th century. There are at least four Scots tunes named for the cave, including compositions by John Gow, Hector MacAndrew and Paul Anderson (not forgetting Mendelssohn's famous Overture).
