West Coast Tours offers a range of day and sightseeing tours. Our day tours to Mull, Iona and Staffa allow visitors to visit two or even three islands in one day as well as regular bus services to Tobermory and joint tickets with Duart Castle. Our City Sightseeing open-top bus tours operate in Glasgow, Oban and Bute and offer expert commentary and the ability to hop-on and off. We also operate a fast passenger ferry link between Campbeltown and Ballycastle in Northern Ireland called the Kintyre Express which offers visitors the chance to combine both the west coast of Scotland and the rugged Causeway Coast of Northern Ireland.

Excellent well organised tour from the start at Oban, ferry on time so arrived on Mull ready to board the coach. Our driver Sheila was well informed on island history plus her comedy and singing made the trip seem short. Had to wait a short time for boat to Staffa as there were so many people going. Short boat trip... More

Booked the tour to Isle of Mull and Iona. Best tour ever. Enjoyed myself to the full especially when in Iona. Peaceful islands. Tour was organized as well and had a very good tour leader and driver.

We were fortunate enough to take the 3 island tour on an absolutely perfect sunny day. Information about connections between the ferries, bus, and boat were very clear. I echo the sentiments of others that our bus guide for Mull, Colin, was fantastic and hilarious! Absolutely try to get on his bus, you won't be sorry! My only suggestion would... More

We booked a tour of Isles Mull, Iona and Staffa through West Coast Tours called the early bird three island tour. I want to break it down in detail for you because it is a really complicated, but lovely day. 7:20am: Park at ferry parking lot (£5/day) and board the ship. A restaurant on the pier called wetherspoon was able... More

I had planned the early bird tour departing from Oban on saturday, and had a wonderful time. I was unable to pick up the tickets a day early, but this was no problem as the office was open from 7 am. The woman that was in was really helpful, by explaining exactly what was going to happen. She also made... More

After planning this trip for 6 months and booking into a B & B in Oban I succumbed to a vicious dosage of influenza that rendered me off my feet and I had to cancel the trip on 21/6/15 which was the 3 island tour of Staffa, Iona and Mull. I sent West Coast an email out of courtesy to... More

This is advertised as the Three Isles Tour and leave at 9.30 and gets back at 7.45pm. Costs £63 per person. The majority of your time is spent visiting Staffa and Iona and Mull is simply transitted from Craignure to Fionnphort. The sea crossing to Staffa was pretty lively in a small boat with 30 passengers, but the visit to... More

Great day out, visiting 3 islands in one day. Connections from ferry to coach to ferry etc was smooth. Plenty of time to explore Staffa and Iona.
