Arran, Islay and Oban - Coach Hopscotch 2

Coach-Hopscotch-2

This tour visits Arran, Islay and Oban with a few highlights listed below.

1. Isle of Arran Distillery

The Distillery Visitor Centre was officially opened by Her Majesty The Queen in 1997 and is situated right next to the distillery. After visiting the Distillery there is plenty of time to take a tour around the island when there is the opportunity for your customers to take in the breath taking seascapes over to Kintyre and south towards the volcanic plug that is known as Ailsa Craig.

2. Islay Distilleries

Islay is justifiably famous for its distinctive smoky and peaty single malt whisky and as of 2018 will have nine working distilleries - Bruichladdich, Bowmore, Laphroaig, Lagavulin, Caol Ila, Kilchoman, Bunnahabhain, Ardbeg and Ardnahoe. Jura produces its own signature malt too at the tiny Jura Distillery and all nine are well worth a visit.

3. Oban Distillery

Oban Distillery is both one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland and one of the smallest with just two pot stills. Pre-dating the town of Oban, it was originally established in 1794 by brothers John and Hugh Stevenson. It underwent a refurbishment in the 1890s. Oban Distillery is both one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland and one of the smallest with just two pot stills.
