DURING YOUR STAY
Day 1 – Breakfast bags will be waiting for you on the coach following your morning pickup. So sit back, and enjoy the journey as we travel to Oban.
Day 2 – Travelling along the glistening shores of Loch Linnhe, we make our way to Fort William, at the foot of Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis. Today we have included a cable car ride up Aonach Mor, the ‘mountain gondola’ is the only one of its kind in Britain and the journey allows breathtaking views of Glencoe, Ben Nevis and on a clear day the Isle of Skye.
Day 3 – After breakfast explore Oban, the ‘Seafood Capital of Scotland’. Oban is a wonderful place to spend the day. For stunning views head to ‘McCraig’s Tower’, this colosseum lookalike stands proudly above the town and provides spectacular views over the town and onto neighbouring islands.
Day 4 – Today we visit the Isle of Mull, stopping briefly at Tobermory the capital of Mull. From here we take you on a scenic drive over to the western point of the island where we catch a foot passenger ferry over to the unique island of Iona. Iona is only 3 miles long and 1 mile wide but it is steeped in magnificent Scottish history which you can explore in Iona Abbey. The small graveyard next to the abbey is also thought to be the final resting place of 48 medieval kings of Norway, Ireland and Scotland including the 11th century king Macbeth!
Day 5 – Today we take you to Invererary, the ancestral home of the Duke of Argyll, who founded the town in 1745. Home to Inveraray Castle, a unique piece of architecture, Dukes Bell Tower and Inverary Jail, an award-winning 19th century prison where you can interact with costumed prisoners, watch courtroom trails or even go to jail!
Day 6 – Taking home treasured memories we begin our journey home.
