Situated on the north-west coast of Scotland, Oban is often known as the gateway to the Hebrides and the Highlands. Its convenient location, makes Oban the perfect starting point for your bike & barge tour through the highlands of Scotland. The landscapes here are incredibly varied, offering intense colour, wild, rugged nature and incredible biodiversity. Spend time in the rugged hills of the Highlands and in the moorland countryside. Carve a route along the dramatic coast, passing pristine, white beaches, as you ride. When you arrive on the islands of Jura and Mull, you can pedal along the quiet roads and see the deer and the shaggy Highland cattle in their natural setting. When travelling on the Flying Dutchman, keep a look out for dolphins and seals. Another unmissable experience of the tour is taking the chance to sample some of Scotland's best-known whiskys. The unique taste, together with traditional Scottish folk music, and the atmosphere of a local pub will create memories that will last for a lifetime.
