Gorgeous trip for anyone into walking and discovering small, unspoilt places. Walk to the Atlantic Centre for lunch with stunning views over Mull and walk back along the rocks with lots of wild life to spot

A great stretch of canal with 15 locks, superb for cycling along and taking in the wonderful views and peace & quiet. Totally unspoilt and not touristy.

Colourful harbour town with a selection of quaint shops, good choice of eateries. There is a double decker bus that you can join at Craignure and is a hop on + off service which visits Duart Castle, the ancient seat of the MacLean Clan.

Beautiful peaceful Island off the coast of Mull with a lovely Abbey, coral white beaches and azure blue waters. Best to book an all inclusive trip from Oban that meets the ferry at Craignure and most drivers will give you a great insight & commentary on the island too.

In my eyes the best drive in the country. For best views of the valley travel from the Tyndrum end and head west. Amazing in all weathers and it makes you really wonder how people travelled this place years ago. Stop off at the Claighaig Inn for a spot of lunch in a typical walkers stop off place.

The lively harbour town of Oban is definitely worth a look. Climb up to mcCaig's Tower for lovely island views. Visit the harbour front and take in the comings and goings of the many ferries. And have a bite in any of the eateries specializing in local seafood.

Parks & Nature
If you wish to experience unspoilt scenery, do not mind a long trip on single track roads, then head for the Glenfinnan . If you time it right round about 11 ish the Harry Potter train with pass over the famous viaduct for getting the iconic photo. Then turn off at Lochailort to enjoy the amazing seaviews to the small isles. Maybe stop off for lunch at the Glenuig Inn for some local seafood or venison. Then head back to the Corran Ferry at your leisure.
