Add a flight from Oban to your tour to Islay
Oban Airport is the perfect place to take off from on your west coast island adventure. The airports of Coll, Colonsay, Tiree and Islay are typically around 30 minutes flying time away. Hebridean Air offer several connections each week to the Isles – typical flight times are around half an hour – making it easy to spend a day exploring, just sit back and enjoy the view. They fly to Coll and Tiree on Mondays and Wednesdays and Islay and Colonsay on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We have designed a few sample tours, to add on to your longer tour with us … we do everything for you, transfers, accommodation, entry fees and bookings, even food and drink – all fully guided.
Oban – Islay; an easy way to add a few days on whisky island to your whisky tour. After, or in the middle, end of your tour with us, why not add two nights on Islay? Day 1 Leave Oban on Tuesday and spend the remainder of the day exploring Islay, with a driver and vehicle meeting you at Islay airport, then whisking you away to take a distillery or two (Laphroaig, Lagavulin or Ardbeg) . Overnight; we have a variety of accommodations from rooms in a pub to 4 star. Enjoy the night.
Day 2 We start after breakfast with a visit to an oyster farm, on a loch. This privately owned family business, will chat to you about their work, where the oysters go, before giving samples – our favourite is a freshly opened oyster with a wee dram of whisky poured into the shell. From here to Bruichladdich for either a tour or just taste and shopping. Along to a wee place we know for lunch, many options here including over 250 whiskies behind the bar! We then head up to Bunnahabhain and Caol Ila – tour or dram, up to you. Head back to your accommodation for a final night – make it a good one, do you like seafood? Care to spend on a platter for two? We can pre book this for you – it is superb.
Day 3 A 15.50 flight back to Oban so you have time for more Islay whisky! Arriving back in Oban approx. 16.30, we meet you and drive to your next destination; Oban or a longer tour with us.
We would suggest if adding this to a longer tour, bring an small piece of luggage to last you the 3 days from Oban and return, leaving your larger luggage in Oban. Price on application: firstname.lastname@example.org
