  • Sightseeing tour of the Highlands
  • Loch Linnhe
  • Cruise along the Caledonian Canal

What we will do
  • We set off from Oban and go on a two-hour sightseeing tour of the scenic Scottish Highlands surrounded by moors, lakes and pine-tree forests with imposting mountains in the background.
  • We drive along the large fjord known as Loch Linnhe, which develops inland creating astounding views, as far as Gairlochy.
  • We then get on a boat to sail along the Caledonian canal which connects the Eastern coast towards Inverness on the North Sea with the Western coast.
  • We relax as we are lulled by the canal’s unique atmosphere and keep our eyes peeled to maybe spot deer, otters and eagles.
  • We admire the main sights that appear before our eyes, which for a moment are brought back to their old splendour thanks to the captivating tales recalled by our guide as we pass some locks along the way. * The perfect way to round off this thrilling cruise is a traditional Scottish cream tea served as the boat continues to sail along the canal before getting off and returning to Oban.
