Itinerary

Day 1Edinburgh - Tobermory

You leave Edinburgh and travel past Stirling Castle to the small bustling town of Callander.

From here, you continue through the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park and bristling terrain of the Trossachs, before reaching the wide and remote expanse of Rannoch Moor.

Your drive north brings you to Glencoe, scene of the infamous massacre of Clan MacDonald in 1692.

After a short ferry ride across Loch Linnhe, you meander through the impressive mountains of Morven to Lochaline, where we take another ferry to the Hebridean island of Mull.

You arrive in Tobermory, the island’s capital, for our three-night stay. Tobermory, meaning ‘Well of Mary’, has brightly coloured houses looking over the sea and is often referred to as one of the prettiest harbour towns in Scotland.

Day 2Tobermory

You drive to the remote areas of the island and visit the pretty settlement of Dervaig.

From here, you venture to the wild thrashing sandy shores of Calgary Bay. And if you’re lucky, you may see the huge white tailed eagles, which live in this area.

An early afternoon return to Tobermory, allows you to soak up the atmosphere of this pretty town. You have a chance to peruse the small shops, and the local Tobermory whisky distillery. (B)

Day 3Tobermory

You head south to Fionnphort, where you take a passenger ferry to the small island of Iona.

Iona is an island of quiet charm, and is the cradle of Celtic Christianity.

You have time to explore the island’s Abbey, and museum of history and Celtic heritage. There are magnificent Celtic crosses and headstones to see, or, alternatively, you can enjoy a stroll along the peaceful sandy beaches.

In the afternoon, you have the opportunity to take a small boat for an optional trip to the island of Staffa, where nature enthusiasts can seek out the abundant marine life.

Staffa is home to Fingal’s cave, which is one of the most amazing geological sites, and is known as ‘Nature’s cathedral’.

After a day in the great outdoors, we return to Tobermory for the night. (B)

Day 4Tobermory - Edinburgh

Departing Tobermory, we head south to Craignure for a short crossing to Oban, the biggest town in Argyll.

Continuing west, you arrive in the whitewashed 18th Century town of Inveraray, on the shores of Loch Fyne. Inveraray castle is a mixture of Scots Baronial and Neo-Gothic architecture and is the seat of Clan Campbell.

After leaving the town, you arrive in the National Park of Loch Lomond and travel up more than 800 feet to the ‘Rest and be Thankful’ view.

You continue to drive east towards Stirling, with opportunities for photos of the castle, before we return to Edinburgh in the early evening. (B)
