Known as ‘the gateway to the isles’, Oban has all of the amenities of a large town, and is also the port for all ferries out to the islands. Organise fantastic day trips over to Mull, Iona, and more.

Mull & Duart Castle

We thoroughly recommend a visit to Duart Castle on the Isle of Mull for an exciting exploration of a traditional, remote Scottish castle. The island is stunning with a dramatic landscape and far reaching coastal views.


Famous for its peaceful beauty and Scottish monasteries, this island is very popular, yet still feels tranquil. Find out more on the Isle of Iona website.
