Days 2 to 4:
We spend the next three days in Oban, with two included excursions to enjoy. We travel to Inveraray, famous as the home of the Duke of Argyll, who lives at Inveraray Castle. The town’s former jail is now a museum which attempts to show how the life of inmates was in the 19th century.
We also take a scenic drive to Fort William along the shores of Loch Linnhe.
The other day is set aside for you to enjoy at your leisure. Ferries leave from Oban to various Scottish Islands, with two of the closest being Lismore and Mull which can be reached in under an hour. Or simply relax around Oban which has castles to explore, a whisky distillery to tour and a number of fantastic seafood restaurants, with the local catch said to be amongst the best in Europe.

It’s our last day! After enjoying a delicious breakfast in the hotel’s restaurant we’ll travel home. Why not start planning your next Shearings break or order a brochure through the Roadshow entertainment system? (Breakfast)
