Day 1 - Outward Travel

Day 2 - Full day to Oban

  • Known as the Gateway to the Isles, this bustling port on the Firth of Lorne commands fine views of the Argyll coast. Shops are along the sea front around the “little bay”, which gives Oban its name and fresh fish is always for sale on the busy pier and regular ferries leave from the harbour to the Hebridean Islands. McCaigs Tower dominates the skyline overlooking the harbour and other major landmarks include the pink granite cathederal and 600 year old ruined keep of Dunollie Castle. On our journey we pass Inveraray, seat of the Dukes of Argyll, Loch Awe and the remarkable Falls of Lora.

Day 3 - Day at Leisure

Day 4 - Excursion including Waverley Paddle Steamer

  • The Waverley is the last sea going paddle steamer in the world, named after Sir Walter Scott’s Waverley Novels. She was built to replace the 1899 Waverley which was sunk by enemy action on May 29 1940 at Dunkirk. Enjoy spectacular views of the Scottish coast on this magnificently restored vessel, with its towering funnels and nostalgic steam engines. Step on board this living part of history, as you embark on a trip you will never forget.

Day 5 - Return Travel
