Our day tours...

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.

Good morning, Really sorry to hear that you were disappointed in the tour and that your coach broke down. Would it be possible for you email Adele Martin at information@westcoasttours.co.uk with details of what tour you took and when you took the tour so we can investigate what happened as I wasn't aware of any breakdowns during the summer?

This tour was the highlight of our trip to Ireland and Scotland. We started out at Oban Harbor and boarded a large ferry to Isle of Mull. At the port, we were met by large comfortable tour buses to drive us across Mull to Finniport where we boarded a smaller boat to the Isle of Staffa and Fingal's cave. We... More

£63 for the "3 Isles Tour" initially seemed expensive...but after the trip was over, it was definitely well worth it! Here's what it included: 1) 45 minute Ferry ride to Isle of Mull 2) 75 minute very beautiful scenic bus tour of Mull 3) 30 minute boat ride to Isle of Staffa 4) 1 hour to spend on the Isle... More

I took the Three Isles tour in September 2015, and it was one of the highlights of my entire Scotland trip. The trip to Staffa alone is well worth the outing, and West Coast Tours gives you plenty of time to see Fingal's Cave and explore the island. Mull and Iona were pleasant excursions as well, and West Coast Tours... More

The "two island" tour gives you tickets to the ferry, plus a round trip by bus between Craignure and Fionnphort. The best thing about this tour is that the bus is conveniently scheduled with the ferry, allowing you to stay on Iona for two hours, just enough to see the Iona abbey, which is beautiful. I really enjoyed this part.... More
