Pretty Oban bustles with life and the harbour is busy with boats making their way to the islands. The town boasts a superb level esplanade, a whisky distillery and woollen mills. Pulpit Hill affords wonderful views across the Firth of Lorne and is the perfect spot from which to appreciate a glorious sunset.
Standing on the shores of Loch Fyne since the 1400s, this must see attraction is the ancestral home of the Duke of Argyll. Explore the many historical rooms housing beautiful tapestries and sumptuous furnishings along with Rob Roy’s sword. Outside, the landscaped grounds feature formal lawns and colourful flowerbeds. We also enjoy free time in Inveraray – perhaps visit fascinating Inveraray Jail.
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.
Ile 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 welcome from your host Tommy and his team.
