Solo Trip to Oban - Can you recommend a tour?

Hi there!

I will be in Oban on August 15 and 16 (Friday and Saturday).

I arrive in Oban midday on Friday so I think I'll tour the town, visit the distillery and try and catch a sunset harbor cruise. Then on Saturday I'd like to take a day trip/tour to either Mull/Iona or up to Loch Ness.

1) Do you have any suggestions for a harbor sunset cruise operator?

2) Between Mull/Iona vs. Loch Ness/Inverness which do you recommend? I hear Loch Ness is gorgeous and a great hike, but it seems a bit farther than a day trip.

3) For either Mull/Iona or Loch Ness/Inverness can you recommend any tour operators I can contact?

I'm alone and can't create my own tour and would like to join an existing itinerary to save money. But I also just can't find any located in Oban.

Any advice would be so appreciated.

Thanks,

Lynn.

I don't know of a harbour sunset cruise, I'm afraid. You could do a nice evening walk to Dunollie castle or McCaig's tower which will give lovely views of evening light over the bay.

In terms of a full day trip, definitely, definitely, Mull and Iona over Loch Ness. The link kenko92 has provided is the one to go for.

Try Turus Mara for day trips to Iona, Staffa and the Treshnish Isles via Mull.
