Oban, Scotland

$6.30$710% off
Oban, Scotland is the beginning of the journey to the Inner Hebridean which includes the Isle of Mull, Iona, and many other small islands. My family and I had decided to rent a car and drive from Edinburgh. It is definitely intense to drive on the wrong side. But, you get used to it after a day or so. Otherwise, to get to Oban, you can take a train from Edinburgh. Oban is a small city with a cute main street filled with restaurants and touristy shops. Even though we had a car, we decided to use a ferry/bus tour. You will want to book a ferry/bus tour to the Isle of Mull, Iona, and Staffa. Be prepared for rain, rain, and more rain. We went at the end of June and it was a miserable, rainy, cold day. But enjoy the beauty of the landscape and the history of the people.

Hi, I’m Emily. I have been an avid female solo traveler most of my adult life. I have traveled to over 27 countries, on four continents, as well as lived in three countries, and tried to learn two other languages. I studied in Chile for a semester in college. I lived in Ecuador for a year, learning Spanish and teaching English. More recently, I was living and teaching in Sweden, and also trying to learn Swedish. I love to explore places off the beaten path, creating my own itineraries, and making connections with the locals. I currently live in Saint Paul, Minnesota. I am a true Minnesotan at heart and enjoy being a local tourist in my home state. I am a travel agent, teacher, dog-walker, and notary public! I am excited to share my experiences, recommendations, and ideas for the places I have traveled. I am a travel agent and my small business is called Postcards Travel. I can book and plan for all types of vacations for all types of people.
