Oban Turkey & Tinsel

6 Days from £279

Muthu Alexandra Hotel, Oban - 5 or 6 Days

This is a great value break in the Highlands to get you in the festive spirit.  Your first excursion is to the picturesque town of Inveraray to explore its popular shops, cafes and attractions.  Leaving the shores of Loch Fyne, we visit Loch Lomond on the same day to admire Scotland’s largest freshwater loch.  Next, we take a scenic drive through Glen Coe and stop to appreciate the magnificent rock buttresses and dramatic slopes, before heading to Fort William, known as the ‘outdoor capital’ of the Highlands.  A day at leisure in Oban will give you a chance to do some Christmas shopping, or just relax in your hotel overlooking the harbour.  For the 6-day tour we have included a trip to the heart of rural Perthshire to sample the delights of hand-crafted whisky on an included tour of Glenturret Distillery - and lunch is included there too!

Inveraray & Loch Lomond

After breakfast we head to the shores of Loch Fyne and the picturesque harbour town of Inveraray.  We take some time to explore the town with its popular shops and cafes.  The magnificent castle, home to the Campbell Clan and the Duke of Argyll, sits just outside the town, whilst Inveraray Jail in the town centre is well worth a visit.  After lunch we head to the shores of Loch Lomond for views of Ben Lomond and down the loch from the village of Tarbert.  We return via the head of Loch Lomond and Tyndrum.

Glen Coe & Fort William

We start our day with a scenic drive through Glen Coe, which is perhaps Scotland's most historic and scenic glen.  We make time for a photo-stop and to appreciate the magnificent surroundings.  We arrive in Fort William, the outdoor capital of Scotland, lying in the shadow of Ben Nevis.  The town offers a wide range of shops and restaurants and we will have ample time to explore all it has to offer.

Day at Leisure in Oban

Scotland's seafood capital offers up a wealth of attractions such as the War and Peace Museum, the Chocolate Factory and Oban Distillery as well as local craft and gift boutiques and other well-known retail outlets which you will have time to enjoy to the full on your free day.  Or you could catch the small ferry to the Isle of Kerrera, which is directly opposite your hotel, or if you are feeling fit, a walk up to McCaigs Tower or Pulpit Hill for outstanding views of the town and its harbour setting.

Glenturret Distillery & Lunch (6-day tour only & tour & lunch included)

Today we travel to rural Perthshire and visit the Glenturret Distillery at Crieff.  Home to the Famous Grouse Experience for several years, the distillery itself has been producing hand-crafted whisky from the clear waters of the River Turret since the early 17th century.  A tour of the oldest distillery in Scotland, whisky tasting and lunch are all included!
