This blissful holiday is based in the heart of the pretty harbour town of Oban and takes in some of Scotland’s most glorious scenery. Oban bustles with life and its harbour is busy with boats setting sail for the islands. The town boasts a level esplanade and whisky distillery as well as Pulpit Hill where you can experience stunning views across the Firth of Lorne, not to mention a tranquil Highland sunset. We make the most of our time with outings to colourful Inveraray, the sleepy settlement of Glencoe, the tourist hub of Fort William and we discover the beauty of the Isle of Mull.
Perhaps explore Inveraray Castle, a romantic fortress and the onetime ancestral seat of the Dukes of Argyll. This landmark features a fairytale façade and gorgeous gardens while the captivating interior boasts an Armoury Hall, State Dining Room and the Tapestry Drawing Room houses fine furniture, artwork and family heirlooms. Or maybe you’d like to visit the award winning jail attraction where costumed characters portray prisoners from bygone days and act out trials and punishments!
Glencoe & Fort William
Glencoe is a charming settlement set amongst truly spectacular scenery. We proceed to Fort William, a favourite location for the makers of such films as Braveheart, Harry Potter and Highlander.
Isle of Mull & Tobermory
We board our ferry and set sail for magnificent Mull with its miles of dramatic coastline and white sand beaches. The island’s picturesque fishing port of Tobermory is home to a whisky distillery, an arts centre, a museum housing artefacts telling the island’s history and of course, the brightly painted houses that line the harbour.
Situated on the esplanade, this friendly hotel enjoys magnificent views across the bay to the Isle of Kerrera and is known for its lively entertainment and friendly welcoming staff.
