Sustainable Travel

This holiday is part of our ever-growing collection of public transport based holidays, enabling you to reach destinations around Scotland – including the Isles of Mull and Arran – without the need to drive. We feel strongly that true sustainability also means promoting and helping to maintain a way of life in areas where the economic benefit of tourism can make a genuine difference to the local community, which is why we have used locally-owned small accommodation and a local guide on this holiday.

Location

Spend one night in Oban, followed by three on the Isle of Mull, two near the shores of Loch Lomond, and finally three on the Isle of Arran.
