After our morning departure we make our way up to our overnight stay in the north east. the next morning we depart our hotel and travel through the heart of scotland. Later we pass through the dramatic scenery of Glencoe, arriving early evening in oban.
We catch the morning ferry to Mull. The second largest island of the Hebrides has unspoilt scenery of mighty mountains and white sand beaches. We travel to Fionnphort where we catch a ferry to the magical island of iona. Known as the ‘Cradle of Scottish Christianity’, as St Columba landed here in 563 and the abbey is the resting place of 48 Scottish Kings.
We follow the stunning scenic coast road south and later travel along the shores of Loch Fyne. We visit inveraray Castle, ancestral home of the Duke of Argyll. This magniﬁcent castle dates from 1746 and has superb state rooms including an impressive armoury hall.
The largest town in Argyll, Oban is known as the ‘Gateway to the Isles’ and the 'Seafood Capital of Scotland'. Oban Distillery is well worth the visit. Nestled right in the heart of the town, it is easily recognisable by its tall chimney. Built in 1794, this is one of Scotland’s oldest sources of single malt Scotch whisky.
Sadly this morning we depart oban and travel south through beautiful Highland scenery, breaking for lunch at the southern end of Loch Lomond and arriving early evening in the Carlisle area.
