Scotland: A Grand Tour of the Inner Hebrides

From:£2,795

Summary

Complementing our Grand Tour of the Outer Hebrides, this equally grand yet relaxing tour takes in the principal Inner Hebridean isles of Mull, Islay and Jura as well as the famous little island gems of Staffa and Iona.

 

We begin on the Isle of Mull, with a visit to the colourful ‘capital’ Tobermory, followed by an exciting boat trip to the tiny island of Staffa and its famous Fingal’s Cave, an amazing natural cathedral of basalt columns. A full day is given over to the wonderfully peaceful island of Iona, with its famous Abbey and beautiful beaches. We then continue to Islay, travelling via Oban and a scenic drive to Kennacraig where we take the ferry to Port Askaig.  We will explore the island, with visits to historic Loch Finlaggan, the Kilchoman Distillery and the Museum of Islay Life, and we will also visit Jura, Islay’s sparsely populated and rather mysterious neighbour.
