Moving on. Okay, so my last post talked about our ride on the Jacobite Steam. Let's begin with the end there. We left Fort William and drove to Oban after the train ride. It was such a pretty drive! Here is a look at the map:
Glenview Guest House. It's a simple bed and breakfast that's not too fancy but cozy. Everybody there was really friendly. She makes you eggs and bacon/sausage for breakfast, and she'll ask what time you need to have breakfast in case you have an early ferry to catch. It's about a 1 mile walk to the ferry station and harbor area. My only complaint was that the walls were a bit thin. The guy in the next room was snoring SO LOUD that it took me a while to fall asleep. LOL.
The Ferry From ObanMoving on. The next morning we ate breakfast and then packed our lunches for our Three Isles Excursion. It was £60/adult and £30/child. It was worth every bit! We almost missed the ferry though! After eating, we realized that we didn't have enough time to walk there so we drove and decided to pay. My GPS took us to the ferry via the route where cars board it.
Here is a map to help you out if you go here:
Isle of MullOur tour bus was nice. I suggest sitting on one side of the bus for both the departing and return trips so that you get views of both sides!

Did you know that the Book of Kells was written at the Abbey in Iona? I didn't! So cool!

Back to Oban

It was a really good trip. We were all completely knackered! I would recommend this trip to anybody. Even though the weather wasn't perfect (you saw the cloudy pictures), it was still lovely and enjoyable. Those are some really great memories. :)
