The Iconic Isles - Bute, Mull and Iona

The Iconic Isles - Bute, Mull and Iona

Rich culture and gorgeous food paired with spectacular, rugged views on offer as we venture to the culture-rich, awe-inspiring Scotland. We’ll be exploring on and off the mainland as we visit the small isles of Bute, Mull and Iona which all feature individual viewpoints fit for royalty! We’re sure once you’re back on to the mainland you’ll be planning which island to move onto to call your own, as each of them are equally as gorgeous.

Day-by-Day Highlights

 

Day 1  We begin our travels as we head up north to Scotland taking in scenic views as we go. It’s at the Cairndale Hotel *** Dumfries where we will take rest, whilst there, enjoy wooden furnishings in this family run, Victorian style hotel.

The hotel has a lift. 

 

Day 2  After resting, depart for the port town of Oban, which rests on still waters to take an early fternoon ferry to the Isle of Mull.

Mull features magnificent views whichever way you may turn, as well as the clearest blue waters.

Take in the lovely scenery before settling in to our next hotel for two nights, the Isle of Mull Hotel & Spa*** which  peacefully overlooks Craignure Bay.

This hotel does not have a lift.

 

Day 3  Enjoy a scenic excursion around the Isle of Mull, which effortlessly flaunts its spectacular  sceneries and gorgeous views once more.

Enjoy a foot passenger ferry crossing to the gorgeous Isle of Iona, located at the western coast of Scotland. 

This Island may be smaller than Mull, but it certainly  does not disappoint with its beauty.

Whilst Iona lacks in high street brand shopping, its strong point is hand crafted goods created from seashells that have fallen astray from its seas, which is greatly refreshing.

Also included is a visit to the colourful Burgh of Tobermory, with its gorgeous front of brightly painted houses which give this town the feeling of being alive.

All this before heading back to our hotel for a well needed rest.

 

Day 4  Catch the morning ferry back onshore to ban to continue our travels, stopping at Inveraray on our way, where high streets are filled once again with brand names!

After some time at leisure we  will head onwards to our next hotel for two nights, The Hallmark Hotel **** Irvine passing the spectacular Loch Lomond on our journey.

The hotel  does not have a lift.

 

Day 5  Awaken to a full day excursion to the Isle of Bute, full to the brim with culture as well as keeping to the theme of spectacular views!

Our scenic tour of the  island will stop at Mount Stuart, a Gothic Victorian style mansion.

Stunning architecture and beautiful gardens re both the stars of today.

After enjoying the 300 acre estate we will take time continuing our scenic journey of the isle, taking plenty of stops for photos.*

 

Day 6  Begin our journey back south to our  overnight stay at the, Holiday Inn*** Preston. The hotel has a lift.
