Day 1: Travel to Oban for a 4 night stay.
Day 2: 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. In the afternoon, we head across the ‘Atlantic Bridge’ to the idyllic Seil Island.
Day 3: Relax on the ferry from Oban to Craignure on the enchanting Isle of Mull. We head to Fionnphort, via Glen More, 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.
Day 4: Today, we enjoy an excursion 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. If time allows, we may visit Neptune’s Staircase, just north of Fort William and the Commando Memorial at Spean Bridge.
Day 5: We sadly depart Oban and head back home.
