Im sure if the verdict is you end up back in Oban again there is still much new ground to see such as Jura Islay and Colonsay as well as small Isles if weather around Ardnamurchan permits a passage further north for a long day trip .

You could always do Mallaig/Arisaig by steam train as a trip off the water from Fort William.

The only way we could have a longer stay is to go at Easter, which is about a month earlier than spring bank next year. Weather could be dodgy & I don't know if I could survive a fortnight of 80+ miles/day, I know the dog couldn't.

I thought spring bank was the right time for the weather it was still cold out on the water even at sping bank, if we went easter time days would be shorter & alot colder, up to now we can only do 7days again this time cos we want to do a week down the south coast & try to get over to the Isles of scilly for a few days & if the penny can stretch i also need a new roof on the house

Right then, "Oban Spring Bank 2014" it is. Let's get it booked & a thread started.
