3 Day Tour to Mull and Iona from Glasgow
How to travel to the Isle of Mull? Journey to Mull by ferry from Oban and discover a paradise for wildlife enthusiasts, history addicts, and seafood connoisseurs. Then, visit the tiny island of Iona is inhabited by around 120 people. But it’s also the location of one of Scotland’s most important religious sights.
Mother nature was generous with Mull. She blessed the landscapes with massive mountains and stunning lochs. She crafted the unique geological wonders of Fingal's Cave. And she stocked the oceans with plenty of tasty sea creatures. So, on this tour, we show you this natural bounty, let you see the most famous sights, and help you get to know a few of the local legends.
You stare in wonder at the Isle of Staffa's curious rock formations. You learn about ancient Christianity at the remote beautiful abbey on Iona. And you wander through the bustling harbour town of Tobermory.
Day 1 On your first day, you’re going to explore some of the mainland’s most memorable sights. You start with a saunter around Loch Lomond in the pretty village of Luss. A perfect spot to drink a coffee and sing the ‘Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond.’ Your driver-guide then takes you through the unforgettable landscapes of Glencoe before a lunch stop at the traditional Clachaig Inn. Now it’s time to reach the remote wilds of Scotland. You hop on a 10-minute ferry to a mountainous peninsula and travel to the port of Lochaline. Here you board another ferry and make your way to the east coast of Mull. Wild nature is abundant here, and your first glimpse of the magic is in Aros Park, a beautiful area boasting waterfalls and forest footpaths. In the early evening, you arrive in Tobermory with time to wander.
Day 2 Saying goodbye to lovely Tobermory is hard, but don’t worry, you’ll be back in the evening. This morning, you travel past epic mountains to the south of Mull. This is where you’ll take a ferry to two of the most mysterious and dramatic locations in the region, Iona Abbey and Fingal’s Cave. One is an ancient religious site and the other is an unforgettable geological wonder. After satisfying your adventurous spirit, we take you north back to Tobermory. Maybe it’s time to try the seafood.
Day 3 You travel south to Craignure to catch your ferry back to the mainland. Your ferry arrives in Oban where you have time to taste the fantastic local seafood and wander around this Victorian harbour town. You then venture to Kilmartin Glen, this is an archaeologist’s dream. Within this area, there are around 800 ancient monuments, including burial chambers, rock carvings, standing stones, castles and more. Your driver-guide will help you understand the significance of these and make the best use of your time here. Your last stop before arriving in Glasgow for the evening is Inveraray, a gorgeous wee town boasting an impressive view over Loch Fyne.
