Experience the breathtaking beauty of the West Coast of Scotland through our immersive multi-day tour. This unique journey will take you to three of Scotland’s most captivating destinations – Oban, Mull, and Iona.
Oban, often referred to as the ‘Gateway to the Isles’, holds the distinction of being the seafood capital of Scotland. It offers an intriguing mix of rich heritage and gastronomic delight. Its bustling harbour serves as a gateway to the enchanting islands of Mull and Iona.
Visitors are often enticed by the freshest seafood delicacies straight from the ocean to the plate. Make sure to taste the local speciality – succulent langoustines and plump scallops, which are the epitome of Scotland’s seafood fare.
Just a short ferry ride from Oban, you’ll discover the rugged beauty of Mull, the second-largest island of the Inner Hebrides. Mull captivates its visitors with its diverse landscapes ranging from towering mountains to dramatic sea cliffs, and serene sandy beaches.
The island is home to a rich array of wildlife, including white-tailed eagles, otters, and seals, providing ample opportunities for nature lovers to immerse themselves in Scotland’s untamed wilderness.
Mull also boasts enchanting coastal villages, such as Tobermory, with its brightly coloured buildings providing a striking contrast against the natural hues of the landscape.
The tour’s pièce de résistance is the sacred Isle of Iona. Located off the southwest coast of Mull, this small island is steeped in Christian history and is known as a tranquil sanctuary for spiritual reflection.
Its clear, turquoise waters offer a mesmerizing view, providing a serene backdrop to the island’s historic landmarks.
The centrepiece of these is undoubtedly the Iona Abbey, an iconic structure with roots stretching back to the 6th century.
As we journey through these remarkable destinations, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the diverse character of Scotland’s West Coast, experiencing firsthand the natural splendours, the vibrant local culture, and the rich historical legacy that makes this region such a wonderful travel destination.
