countryside before reaching your waterfront
hotel in Oban where we enjoy the next four

After a leisurely breakfast, enjoy a
morning free to explore Oban. This afternoon
we have a half day tour to Seil Island, made
famous by the film “Ring of Bright Water.”
Enjoy the quaint village of Easdale with its
whitewashed fisherman’s cottages and
microbrewery for those wishing to sample
the local brew.


Today you will travel across to Mull
on the ferry and on arrival you will be met by a
local coach and driver. We will then travel south
taking in the scenery sighting the imposing Duart
Castle, reaching the most westerly point of the
island, Fionnphort. Here you board the short
ferry journey on foot to the small island of Iona
to visit the abbey. There are many easy walks in
the area and plenty of time to enjoy the island
and its beach before heading back to catch your
ferry back to Oban.


A scenic coastal drive along the
shoreline of the loch takes you to Fort William
at the foot of Ben nevis. Free time to explore the
main town of the West Highlands. A short drive
takes us to nevis Range and the cable car ride
into the mountains with walks and magnificent
views of Gelncoe, Ben nevis and on a clear day,
the Isle of Skye. There is a comfortable bistro
and observation balcony.


After breakfast it is time to head back
