Oban 'Drams & Dances' (including Isle of Mull)

Oban 'Drams & Dances' (including Isle of Mull)

BASED AT THE ROYAL HOTEL

DEPARTS MONDAY 4TH DECEMBER

RETURNS FRIDAY 8TH DECEMBER

 

5 Days from £270

 

The west coast of Scotland has some of the most dramatic scenery in the United

Kingdom where numerous lochs cut in to the mountainous coastline. For 2017,

we have pleasure in re-introducing the popular resort of Oban, known as the

‘Gateway to the Isles’. First popular in Victorian times, Oban is a busy fishing

port set in a sheltered curving esplanade and dominated by McCaigs Tower, an

unfinished replica of Rome’s Colosseum. From here there are fine views of the Isle

of Mull with its breathtaking scenery and abundance of wildlife.

 

Our ‘Drams and Dances’ package includes two drinks receptions, an afternoon

tea, quiz, bingo, traditional Scottish fayre and entertainment each evening.

 

Our base in Oban is the very comfortable ROYAL HOTEL located in the centre

of the town close to the harbour. Dating from 1895, the Royal offers traditional

Scottish hospitality within quality modern surroundings. There is a restaurant

overlooking the Town Square and a lounge bar where drinks and snacks are

available throughout the day. All of the en suite bedrooms feature tv, telephone,

hairdryer and hospitality tray. A passenger lift serves all floors but please note

there are some steps to negotiate in and around the public areas so the hotel may

not be suitable for the very elderly /infirm.
