Oban and the Isles of Mull & Iona
Experiences Scotland's mountains, lochs and glens, the resort or Oban and the enchanting and tranquil islands of Mull and Iona.
Head north into Scotland and travel to Oban for a 5 night stay.
Relax on the ferry from Oban to Craignure, to visit the enchanting Isle of Mull. Head to the north of the island to the colourful harbour town of Tobermory, which was famously used for the setting of the children’s TV show Balamory. It is home to an excellent selection of locally produced arts and crafts, the Mull Museum, a distillery and a Marine Visitor Centre. Return on the ferry to Oban.
Today, we head north to Fort William, which is one of the Highland’s major resorts in a dramatic setting on the shore of Loch Linnhe and lying under the shadow of Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis.
We board the ferry from Oban to Craignure again, but this time to travel via the south of Mull and Glen More to Fionnphort, to board a foot passenger only ferry for the short crossing to the tranquil Isle of Iona. Discover its Abbey (admission not included) and the burial place of Scottish Kings. Although a tiny island, Iona is full of history and heritage, with Christianity at its heart. Return on the ferry to Oban.
Explore the coastal resort of Oban, which is known as the ‘Gateway to the Isles’. Whilst in Oban, stroll along the Esplanade, visit McCaig’s Tower which overlooks the town, enjoy a wee dram at the distillery and visit the War & Peace Museum.
