Day 1

Join Splendour at 15:00 hrs at the North Pier, Oban for your welcome aboard bubbles. After Skipper Iain’s safety briefing set sail for Tobermory, capital of the Island of Mull. The scenery just outside Oban bay is magnificent with the hills of Mull and Morven off the bow, the Nevis mountain range to starboard and the seascape of the Firth of Lorne with it’s many islands to port. A wonderful start to your short break cruise aboard Splendour. We anchor for dinner and overnight in Tobermory Bay – famous for the colourful houses and the Spanish Armada gold bullion!

Day 2

Back aboard Splendour for coffee and Chef Mike’s freshly baked melting moments as we weigh anchor for Lunga. Here we will have a very special and close encounter for the renowned puffin colony. After puffin therapy we set sail for the sublime anchorage between Ulva and Gometra.

Day 3

Walking on Gometra or Ulva is like stepping back in time. The only vehicle you are likly to encounter being an estate quad bike. With a great chance of spotting White Tailed or Golden Eagles on these special islands. Alva was the birthplace of Governor McQuarrie of New South Wales and was the summer holiday destination for a young David Livingston who’s grandparents worked a croft here. Next we’re off to Staffa and an unforgettable tender ride, right into Fingal’s cave before steaming back into the Sound of Mull for overnight Anchorage in Loch Aline.
