Terra Firma is the eighth album by Scottish Celtic rock group Wolfstone. It was released in 2007. It saw Ross Hamilton take over lead vocals, only for him to leave the band a few months later.

Note "Back Home" seamlessly segues into "Break Yer Bass Drone Again" (with ..."Drone Again" actually being a reprise of "Back Home"), giving the impression that both tracks are different parts of the same recording.

The album saw a shift in the change of style, with a more alternative rock approach taken to it.
