Ports

Poole is a large town on the south coast of England. It has a quaint old harbor, and an attractive old town. The area is popular amongst wealthy people, so make sure a restaurant fits your budget before you order. Water sports are popular in the area, as is hiking and cycling. If you want to have a slightly more restful stay, Poole has a number of excellent beaches. The surrounding Dorset countryside is extraordinarily beautiful, so rent a car and explore if you have the time!

Oban (meaning ‘little bay’ in Gaelic) is a small harbor town on the west coast of Scotland, famous for its whiskey distillery. The town occupies a beautiful setting in the Firth of Lorn, and is a perfect place to find shelter from the Atlantic. Walking around town is a pleasure, and close by you’ll find mountains, castles, dramatic coastal scenery, and McCaig’s tower that resembles the Colosseum. In the first week of August, the town plays host to West Highland week, a yearly sailing regatta.
