Travel Blogs from Oban
... of over an hour with gorgeous scenery to reach the ferry to Iona. In the summer they run every 20 minutes, but now only once an hour. It was only a 10 minute ferry ride, and we were on Iona about 12:45. It is a very small island, only 3 miles long and maybe 1.5 miles across.

It was okay but all of us hated the two whiskeys we tried.
Savinay decide to drive us into the mountains toward what is called the GlenCoe region. That ...
