Mutha Alexandra Hotel, Oban ***

Nestled between the lodgings of the Bishop of Argyll & the Isles and the Old Oban Baptist church, The Alexandra Hotel enjoys one of the most spectacular locations in Scotland. The views across Oban Bay to the island of Kerrera and beyond are an instant joy.


The beautiful glass frontage allows guests to soak up stunning views every minute of the day. Colourful sunsets, seabirds of all kinds and Seals can be spotted most evenings, the perfect end to a day while guests enjoy a drink in the bar area.


Each standard bedroom comes with an ensuite bathroom, hairdryer, flat screen television, iron and tea and coffee making facilities.


Price includes:

  • 4 night stay at Mutha Alexandra Hotel

  • Dinner, bed and breakfast

  • All excursions

  • Free time in Oban, Mallaig and Easdale

  • Return ferry crossing between Oban, Mull and Fionnphort

  • Luxury coach travel

  • Services of an experienced tour driver



Morning departure from our local area with stops on route, we travel to Oban which will be our base for the next four nights. Here you will be treated to fabulous views overlooking the Isles of Mull and Kerrera.


Following an early breakfast we make our way down to the harbour to catch the morning sailing to Mull. We will then enjoy the scenic drive to Fionnphort for a short ferry crossing to Iona, the burial place of Scottish Kings including the legendary Macbeth. We then have a late afternoon return ferry crossing to Oban, returning in time for evening dinner in our hotel.


Today we head for the highlands. With breath taking views, we travel through Glencoe to Fort William, overlooking Loch Linnhe. After a short break, we will board the train to Mallaig, taking in the beautiful scenery on route. Your coach and driver will be waiting for you at Mallaig where you will then return to the hotel in time for dinner.


Another scenic drive awaits you as we travel over the Atlantic Bridge to Sil Island, which is one of few Scottish islands where no ferry is required. We then travel to its most southern point to the quaint village of Easdale where you will have some free time before we return to Oban. After spending the afternoon at your leisure in Oban, we return to the hotel for our evening meal.


Today we bid a fond farewell to Oban and embark on our journey home, a scenic drive in itself. We will arrive home in Cumbria late afternoon.
