Ports

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.

Inverness is a city in the Scottish Highlands. It was a place of residence for Gaelic king Mac Bethad Mac Findlaich, immortalised by Shakespeare in his play Macbeth. With its multiple bagpipe players and a lot of Gaelic-speakers, Inverness is the perfect place to soak in the Scottish culture.
