Suggested itinerary by coach
Monday: Arrive at hotel and enjoy dinner and entertainment
Your group will arrive to a warm Scottish welcome. Gather for a drinks reception whilst listening to the Highland Bagpipes being played. A selection of local Malts will be enjoyed along with a taster of Scotland’s finest canapés. Your group will then be served a delicious three course dinner, then settle into a night filled with Scottish Entertainment.
Tuesday: Optional excursion to the Isle of Mull
After tucking into a full Scottish breakfast why not take your group around some of the amazing west coast of Scotland sights. From Oban, take the 55 minute ferry crossing to Mull, the fourth largest of the Scottish Islands. Tobermory, the island’s main town, was built as a fishing port in the late 18th century. It is a picture postcard of a place with the brightly painted buildings along the main street. The village was used as the setting for the children’s television programme ‘Balamory’. Be sure to bring your group back with an appetite as they will partake in a pre-drinks reception of Mulled Wine, then enjoy a delicious three course Carvery Dinner followed by an evening of Scottish Entertainment.
Wednesday: Free time in Oban plus Afternoon Tea with bingo and quiz
Again a full Scottish Breakfast will be available to your group. Enjoy free time in Oban this morning. In the afternoon, you will be served a scrumptious Afternoon Tea with tea/coffee, a glass of fizz and fresh home baking in the Lounge Bar with a Whisky Galore Bingo & Quiz – prizes to be won! A tasty dinner will be followed by an evening of dancing and singing with Argyll’s top musical act.
Thursday: Fort William and optional distillery visit
Again start the day with a hearty full Scottish breakfast before your group heads out for some free time in the popular town of Fort William. Why not visit the Ben Nevis Distillery for a ‘wee’ dram on your way back. Return to the hotel for a full Highland Banquet followed by an evening of entertainment and dancing with the Strathmore Ceilidh Band and the legendry Torquil Telfer on the bagpipes – make sure you get your group to bring some tartan!
