Three Isles Tour – Mull, Iona & Staffa
Duration: 10 Hours
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.
This tour operates Tuesday to Saturday from 24 July until 10 October 2020.
The tour departs at 1030 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 subject to favourable sea and weather conditions.
We strongly recommend bringing your own food, snacks and refreshments at this time as food outlets are limited.
Please note, Iona Abbey is currently closed to visitors.
