Mull & Iona Day Tours
These magical islands of the Inner Hebrides seem a world away, steeped in ancient legends, fantastic land and seascapes, wildlife and Scottish food trails.
Isle of Mull Day Tour
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, the second largest in the Inner Hebrides, is too large to get around on foot, a private day tour is the best way to take in all the scenery, from pearl beaches and rugged mountainous glens to chocolate box villages. The adventure starts with the exciting 45-minute ferry ride from Oban. Tour Duart Castle, stronghold of the McDonalds, beachcomb, spot eagles and other wildlife and indulge in island fare as we follow the Scottish Chocolate, Cheese, West Coast Whisky and Seafood Trails. Optional stops and attractions include- the ferry journey Duart Castle, Tobermory, Scottish Chocolate Trail, Tobermory Distillery, West Coast Whisky Trail Calgary Bay, Macquarie’s Mausoleum and Lochbuie Standing Stone Circle.
This private day trip to Mull is available for up to five people, and lasts up to 10-11 hours.
Isle of Iona Day Tour
The remote Island of Iona has been sacred for millennia, first for the holy pagan druids, and then for Christians, when since St Columba founded a monastery there in the 6th century. Surrounded by turquoise blue waters, Iona 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. This journey begins by ferry from Oban, takes you across the most scenic parts of Mull, then to a passenger ferry to Iona. It’s quite an adventure, but well worth the time and much easier and more relaxing to do with our door to door service.
This private day trip to Iona is available for up to five people, and lasts up to 10-11 hours. Please note that visiting Iona Abbey requires the ability to walk up to a mile.
