Why book a tour with us rather than hiring a car?
Roads in the Highlands are narrow, winding and often single track, with spotty satellite coverage to help you navigate. The concentration required will prevent you from enjoying your day to the fullest. Sit back, relax and let us do all the planning, booking and driving so you see all the best spots and hidden gems.
Why book a private tour with us instead of a coach tour?
We strive to make sure each Imagine Alba tour is just to your liking. Your pace can be as slow or fast as you wish, and we can make as many stops as you want. Our luxury vehicle with panoramic windows and a/c allows for superior comfort, and little touches like snacks, waters, whisky make your day extra special.
Most of our featured day trips from Oban, listed below, are priced at £500 total for 1-5 guests, which does not include attraction entrance fees.
