The Three Isles Tour allows you to discover the wonders of three Scottish islands in one day, taking you through the stunning scenery of the Isle of Mull followed by a visit to the Isle of Iona then onto the awe-inspiring visit to the unique Isle of Staffa to see Fingal’s Cave and, until early August, the opportunity to see its nesting puffins.
The tour departs from Oban at 0955 daily.
Operates from late March until October 2024.
Please exchange your online voucher at the West Coast Motors/Tours shop in Oban.
The tour departs at 0955 from Oban Ferry Terminal on the CalMac ferry, crossing the Firth of Lorn to Craignure on Mull where you join your coach. On the coach journey, you’ll hear fascinating commentary about the beautiful scenery you’re travelling through and the history of the island. The route through Mull is via Glen More to Fionnphort where you board the ferry for the Isle of Staffa. After landing on Staffa and visiting Fingal’s Cave, we sail south to the Isle of Iona. See the Benedictine nunnery and the Reilig Oran – the burial place of kings – as well as Iona Abbey.
Sailings and landings are subject to favorable sea and weather conditions.
Food outlets are available on the CalMac ferry crossing from Oban to Mull and also on the Isle of Iona. You may wish to bring a packed lunch for the other legs of the tour.
