Our main destination on Day 1 is Oban, the most picturesque town in the Highlands known as the 'Seafood Capital of Scotland' and famous for its Whisky Distillery and the impressive McCaig's Tower. There is a lot to see and to do in Oban including visiting attractions such as the historic Dunollie Castle, Oban Whisky Distillery, Oban Chocolate Factory/Shop, St Columba's Cathedral and McCaig's Tower, a Colosseum look alike situated uphill offering the most spectacular and panoramic views of the town, the harbour and across to surrounding islands. Our adventurous tour on Day 1 also includes visiting the beautiful Highland town of Inveraray, a chance to see Inveraray Castle filmed in 'Downtown Abbey' and enjoy the peaceful and beautiful Loch Fyne where Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid) married his love!

The most exciting part of our adventure on Day 2 is a ferry journey to an exciting Three Isles Tour. On this fantastic Three Isles Tour on Day 2, we will discover the wonders of three Scottish islands traveling by ferry through the stunning sceneries to visit Isle of Mull (the 4th largest and dramatic Scottish island) followed by a visit to Isle of Iona to see the famous Abbey and its natural beauty. Finally, the highlight of the Three Isles Tour will be a short boat trip to the awe-inspiring Isle of Staffa, with its unique hexagonal basault column cliffs and Fingal’s Cave. We will also have a chance to get up close to the nesting puffins on Staffa. You will have plenty of time to enjoy visiting these islands in a fully guided tour.
