The picturesque port town of Oban, the gateway to the Hebrides, sits on the water’s edge of the west coast.

Just outside the town you can discover the ruins of Dunollie Castle and on Loch Creran, the Scottish Sea Life sanctuary.
Mull’s main ferry port, Craignure, is worth stopping to visit. Visit the magnificent 13th century Duart Castle standing proudly on its rocky outcrop – take in the dungeons or visit the state rooms before heading south across the Mull landscape past Loch Spelve.
Ross of Mull
The scenery at Ross of Mull is spectacular – take in the cliffs, arches and sea stacks whilst enjoying a walk in the fresh air - watch out for the eagles overhead. There is the option to take the ferry across to Iona.
Looking out over Loch na Keal, Gruline is a stop on the spectacular scenic road where you can take in the Macquarie Mausoleum and St. Columba’s Episcopal Church. Take in the views at Loch Ba, Beinn Bheag and Beinn a’ Ghaig.
The capital of Mull, Tobermory is famous for its brightly coloured houses overlooking the harbour where you’ll find the working fishing boats and yachts. A great place for wildlife, keep a look out for otters, sea eagles and dolphins.
Returning to Oban, browse the galleries and independent shops, take a distillery tour, enjoy the local seafood and make time to watch the spectacular sunsets. The town makes a great place for touring the surround area where you’ll find a range of castles, beaches and forests.
