Easdale
Guided Car Tour

On the Easdale guided car tour we travel south along the coast of Argyll and cross the Bridge over the Atlantic to Seil Island. Here at the Tigh nan Truish Inn, Highlanders changed into trousers to visit the mainland when Highland dress was prohibited after the last Jacobite Rebellion. Seil is one of the Slate Islands and Easdale slate was exported all over the world. Today the peaceful quality of the island seems to take you back in time to another age. See the quaint quarriers’ cottages at Ellenabeich and take the short ferry crossing to the island of Easdale where the quarriers cut out the slate.

The Arduaine Gardens guided car tour is a must for keen gardeners.  In the mid-1880s J. Arthur Campbell built a mansion on a bare promontory just south of Oban. He designed a garden with a shelterbelt of exotic conifers and broadleaved trees. Behind the trees there are rhododendrons, azaleas and exotic plants from all over the world such as magnolias, giant Himalayan lilies, and swamp loving carnivorous plants. J. Arthur Campbell’s mansion is now Loch Melfort Hotel. At their bistro you can relax and look out to sea.
