Oban, Mull & Iona
4 Days Away
Situated in a perfect horseshoe bay, and protected by the island of Kerrera, the town of Oban is the ‘Gateway to the Isles’ its busy port a hive of activity. Dominated by McCaig’s Tower, a walk to this folly perched on the summit of Battery Hill, is rewarded with stunning views of not only Oban but the islands which its port serves. A visit to Oban Distillery is a must, situated in the centre of the town it is the ideal way to learn about whisky, and perhaps sample a dram or two. With two cathedrals to visit, a museum, and multitude of cafés and restaurants, there is plenty to see in Oban itself, but a short stroll along the seafront to Dunollie Castle and Museum is an incredibly interesting place to discover about the history of this town and its inhabitants.We arrive in Mull in the picturesque Tobermoray, with its colourful houses and pretty harbour, we travel through this wildly beautiful island and board the Iona ferry for the short journey, where St Columba established a monastery over 1,400 years ago. Many pilgrims have completed this journey and the first place to visit is usually the stunning Iona Abbey, the burial place of many Scottish, Irish and Norwegian Kings, but do not miss the oldest surviving building on the island, St Oran’s Church which dates from 1150. The tranquillity of the island also provides a home for much wildlife which enables the opportunity to appreciate birds and sea life in their natural habitat.

Oban has grown from a small quaint fishing village to a bustling harbour town and one of Scotland’s most visited coastal resorts.
The town itself lies in the basin of a crescent overlooked by its most famous landmark McCaig's Tower, a Colosseum-like folly built around 1900 as a monument to the McCaig family.
