Day 1

Oban to Mull

Lying in the southwest of Scotland is Argyll and its islands. With a coastline longer than that of France, it is an interesting area for cruising or for a Scottish superyacht charter. This beautiful land has been inhabited for thousands of years and this is evident from the ancient standing stones and castles to be found here.

A sail from Oban to Glasgow, around Scotland’s craggy southwest coast is without doubt, a memorable and exhilarating experience.

Day 1: Oban to Mull

The town of Oban, located to the west of the mainland has the best practical facilities in the area, and, nicknamed the seafood capital of Scotland, you can enjoy an array of superb seafood eateries. There are good landward travel connections and the marina has seaplane docking.

Mull, the largest island in this group, lies just across the dramatic sound that separates it from the mainland. From the picturesque harbour in Tobermory, surrounded by quaint multi-coloured houses, it’s just a short journey by road to local whisky distilleries. On Mull’s west coast you can tuck into sheltered anchorages in order to explore natural wonders such as Fingal’s Cave on the tiny island of Staffa. Here, solidified lava forms perfect hexagonal columns that tower high into the cliffs.
