Isle of Mull & Duart Castle
This morning we board the ferry at Oban for our journey across the water to see the beautiful Isle of Mull. Enjoy a morning touring the island to see some of the most unspoilt beaches in Scotland, then there's time to explore the pretty port of Tobermory, where you can lunch and browse the many shops. After time here we travel back across the island to visit Duart Castle, where you can learn all about its fascinating history as the seat of the MacLeans.
Today we take the short journey south today to visit one of Argyll's best gardens near Arduaine. The gardens have a large variety of plants to explore including azaleas, rhododendrons and giant Himalyan lilies to name but a few. There are amazing views over to Jura to enjoy as you wander through the gardens here and also refreshments at the adjacent Loch Melfort Hotel for those who wish a rest.
Oban & Seil Island
Enjoy a morning at your leisure in Oban before the coach takes you the 12 mile journey south over the Clachan Bridge to Seil Island, one of the Slate Islands where we visit Ellenabeich - a small village full of white-washed cottages which are featured in Ring of Bright Water. The Slate Islands were the centre of the Scottish Slate Industry during the 18th & 19th Centuries and you will have time to visit the Heritage Centre on Seil, or take the 5 minute ferry crossing to Easedale (not included) where you can explore the small island by foot. The coach will take you back to Oban late afternoon in time for your dinner in the hotel restaurant.
