It is home to Inveraray Castle, a unique piece of architecture, Dukes Bell Tower and Inverary jail, an award-winning 19th century prison where you can interact with costumed prisoners, watch courtroom trails or even go to jail!

Day 4

Today, after an early start, we set sail to Craignure, from here we take you on a scenic drive to Fionnphort where we catch a foot passenger ferry over to the unique island of Iona. Only 3 miles long and 1 mile wide, Iona is steeped in magnificent Scottish history which you can explore in Iona Abbey. The small graveyard next to the abbey is also thought to be the final resting place of 48 Medieval kings of Norway, Ireland and Scotland, including the 11th century king Macbeth! After some free time, we return to Fionnphort and head to Tobermory, the capital of Mull to enjoy free time. Tobermory was built as a fishing port in the late 18th century and is now a picture-postcard of a place with brightly painted buildings along the main street towards the pier surrounded by high woodland-fringed hills. After a fantastic day we return to the hotel for a late dinner this evening.

In a prime location, right in the centre of the curving esplanade, just a pleasant walk from the shops and harbour, stands Oban's Great Western; a hotel proud of offering space and comfort, as well as magnificent views of the bay (remember to look out for those memorable sunsets!). Ideal for a relaxing holiday, the activity on the bay can simply be watched from the welcoming lounge and cocktail bar, while it's also an ideal touring centre.
