From Mull it is possible to visit historic and spiritual Iona; alternatively jump on a local boat across to Kerrera for views back towards Oban and a great day's walking. Closer to Oban, Lismore, Seil island and Luing also showcase the best in west coast scenery.

Wildlife Watching - Sealife Sanctuary

Wildlife Watching - Coastal Connection, & Sealife Surveys
Oban is a busy sea port and as you would expect the majority of the best wildlife to see is off the coast of Oban. The best way to see it all is to take a tour on a RIB and get up close and personal with the sea life.
