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.

It was worth getting up early! Although it was overcast when we started our day, we had nice views during the first part of the journey on the ferry. We then transferred to a comfortable bus ride through Mull and had our first experience with the single track roads! I give those bus drivers a lot of credit. We were... More

We took the 3 Isles Tour from Oban at 10am - over to Mull on the ferry where we were collected by a fantastic driver who brought the whole island alive with his enthusiasm for the wildlife, views, history and characters. My kids were glued to the windows watching for otters, hen harriers, eagles and deer. We transferred to a... More

The three Isles on the tour were amazing, the CalMac ferries all connected, the West Coast Motors coach on Mull was waiting was us and our driver, Sheila, was the best. She made it all so interesting and her passion humour and enthusiasm was infectious. Even her singing. Saw thousands of puffins but really why didn't I take my take... More

I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the area. Everything ran so smoothly and on time. The coach ride through Mull was made all the more interesting by our amusing and knowledgeable driver Sheila. On the boat across to Staffa we saw a group of dolphins, and on Staffa itself the puffins were just a delight. All in all... More

A memorable day when we saw so much. Staff were very friendly and the connections/transitions were very smooth. It involved 2 bus rides & 5 ferries (small & large), all of which were clean & safe. Mull - good bus trip but wish there had been some commentary sharing the history of the island Staffa - a real highlight of... More

Incredible experience! This is an all day tour, but is loaded with sites that are so beautiful the day will pass very quickly. The ferry service is wonderful with great views of the water. We were very lucky that the Puffins were nesting on the Isle of Staffa. Had about 30 minutes to watch these incredible little birds, but watching... More

I definitely recommend this tour. What a way to see the 3 islands in one day. The team made it so easy, everything went smoothly. We left Ayrshire at 6 am, collected our tickets at Oban and were on the 9.45 Calmac service to Mull. Coaches were waiting to take us round to Fionnphort where the sun burst through showing... More

We recently did the Three Isles Tour and had a fabulous day! The co-ordination of each part of the tour was seemless, and it was a fabulous way to see some stunning parts of Scotland! Will definitely visit again!

The coordination of the Tour to Mull, Staffa and Iona was very good and the time spent on each isle was sufficient. The coach trip from the east coast to the west coast of Mull was very informative. The boat from Mull to Staffa and Iona is not very big, so if you go when there any kind of sea... More

This tour packed in a visit to Mull, Staffa and Iona in a single day but never felt rushed. Coordination between the three partners Caledonian Mac Brayne, West Coast Motors and Staffa Tours was first rate, and enabled us to see the beauty of Mull, the tranquility of Iona and the wilderness island of Staffa.
