Here are our most popular private day tours from Oban:
Explore Glen Coe, perhaps the most iconic landscape in Scotland- certainly with the most intriguing history. The scenic drive past lochs and castles into this romantic glen offers plenty of photo opportunities, including a plethora of waterfalls and stunning peaks such as Buachaille Etive Mor and Bidean nam Bian.
Our most popular day tour, this journey down the coast through the Heart of Argyll and Kilmartin Glen is steeped in ancient history, charming villages, spectacular views and world class cuisine.
From stunning castles to a power station built into a mighty mountain, this day tour features some of Scotland’s finest historical architecture, including St Conan's Kirk, Kilchurn and Inveraray Castles.
Named as one of Lonely Planet’s top spots in Europe to “Go Wild”, the Island of Mull off the coast of Oban is a nature lover’s dream. As the island is too large to get around on foot, a private day tour is the best way to take in all the scenery, from world class beaches, rugged mountainous glens and chocolate box villages.
This magical green isle surrounded by tranquil blue waters attracts pilgrims to this day who make the journey for spiritual reasons, but its remote tranquillity, with a gorgeous historic abbey and sweeping views, captures the hearts of all those who make the effort to visit.
The islands off the coast of Oban may be small, but they are big on charm. Our day tours to the Slate Islands (Seil, Easdale, Luing), Kerrera or Lismore show you a lesser known part of Scotland with unique culture, Quirky, scenic and with an intrepid feel, this tour is great if you are looking for something different, want to hike or just stroll in the refreshing sea air.
Enjoy a walking tour of scenic Oban, the unofficial capital of the West Highlands and Seafood Capital of Scotland with an STGA Yellow Badge certified and insured guide. This one to three hour stroll through "The Wee Bay" takes in cathedrals, a malt whisky distillery, a castle, historic architecture, raised beaches, piers, lighthouses, memorials and more.
