Super excursions!

This wonderful tour, based in Dunoon where Loch Long and the Holy Loch join the sea, takes in no less than five of Scotland’s finest lochs along with Oban and Inveraray, giving you a really fabulous insight into the beauty of this part of Scotland. We will also take the road to lovely Loch Lomond making a stop at Arrochar & picturesque Luss.

The resort of Dunoon itself has a promenade which is lovely for an evening stroll. Dunoon Pier is one of the town’s iconic buildings, with its striking red-tiled roofs and timber in chocolate, cream and yellow... a fine place to sit and watch the comings and goings of Scottish life. It's an easy walk through the hotel gardens to the promenade. On your day at lesiure in Dunoon, why not try to pick up a trip on a local pleasure cruise or if you're lucky, you might even catch a trip on the Waverley - how's that for a bit of nostagia?

Selborne Hotel Dunoon

Situated in a great position overlooking Dunoon’s West Bay, this relaxed waterfront hotel is also just a short walk from the Castle Museum. The Bay View dining room serves great local food and there is a guest lounge and bar with its own dance floor for you to relax in or be entertained in. The hotel also benefits from landscaped gardens and very comfortably furnished bedrooms.

Day 1

After joining the coach, we head towards Scotland and our lovely resort of Dunoon. We will have convenient coffee/lunch stops along the way and expect to arrive at our hotel late afternoon. Check in, unpack and then relax until dinner, which we know you're going to love.

Day 2 - 4

Enjoy hearty traditional Scottish breakfast daily along with free time to explore or relax on your own. Then make sure you join us for our wonderful INCLUDED excursions, taking in some of the best lochs in the country along with stunning Oban & Inverary. Dinner and entertainment at the hotel are included every evening and a great opportunity to make new friends and share your stories of the day.

Day 5

After a final tasty breakfast we make our way home. After stopping for a coffee/lunch break, we continue homewards.

Inveraray

Overlooking the still waters of Loch Fyne, Inveraray is a traditional county town in Argyll. Established in 1745 by the 3rd Duke of Argyll, head of the powerful Clan Campbell, the town is an absolute set piece of Scottish Georgian architecture. Key buildings that are worth visiting include the neoclassical church, and Inveraray Jail and courthouse, now an award-winning museum that graphically recounts prison conditions from medieval times up until the 19th century. A short walk north of the New Town, the neo-Gothic Inveraray Castle remains the family home of the Dukes of Argyll. There are also the usual choice of great shops, bars and restaurants to explore and maybe enjoy a ‘wee dram’?

Oban

Oban’s name derives from the Gaelic language and means ‘little bay’. Surrounded by miles of dramatic coast and beautiful countryside, the seaside town is also known as the Gateway to the Isles. Oban itself is compact and easy to get round on foot. There are plenty of small galleries and independent stores to browse through, as well as the centrally-located local distillery, chocolate shop, and museum. Wander along the seafront to the ruined Dunollie Castle and the sandy beaches beyond.

Two of the 5 lochs we will pass by in combination with Inverary:

Loch Fyne

Loch Fyne is Scotland’s longest sea loch extending from just above Inveraray , past Portavadie and then out to the Kyles of Bute. Known as ‘Argyll’s Secret Coast’ this area is renowned for its spectacular scenery and wildlife . A drive around Loch Fyne offers you ever changing views with some of Scotland’s most spectacular and unspoilt scenery

Loch Awe

Loch Awe is a large loch, dotted with small islands and a handful of quaint villages surrounded by imposing countryside.
