Tours

Tours can be tailor-made to suit

Be it half a day, a full day or a week, I can design a tour to suit.

We are a very small flexible company.

Just tell us where you would like to go, the type of accommodation you would like and your interest, e.g: Scottish history, culture, Gaelic, castles etc.

Feel free to contact me with any ideas for a tour you may have.

Nothing beats local knowledge.

There is so much to see in Argyll alone, enough to keep you going for as long as you like.

I can also go further afield. I lived in the Outer Hebrides for almost twenty years so if you want to practice your Gaelic, what better place to go to than the islands! As a past local, I know the people who would be happy to blether to you in their native language.

Below are a few examples of tours that are popular.

Five Castles Tour 

Visit five of Argyll’s castles  located around wild and majestic Loch Awe and district. Hear tales of love and jealousy and of ancient clans. Call in on the stunning Inveraray Castle and its beautiful gardens.

Kintyre Peninsula Tour

Let Christine take you on an incredible journey  down the stunning Kintyre peninsula soaking in gorgeous views, stopping at Tarbert castle with its connections to Robert Bruce and to the glorious Skipness castle with its strategic importance in guarding the Kilbrannan Sound and its turbulent history.  Tarry a while  at Saddell  Abbey to soak in the tranquillity of this ancient place.Travel down as far as pretty Carradale Bay then return via the majestic western route past some spectacular seascapes.

Ancient churches Tour

Argyll abounds with beautiful churches old and not so old.  Stop and see some of the finest stone carvings in all of Scotland. Visit stunning locations and understand why the monks of old chose these spots to worship and contemplate. Hear a Gaelic song or two in the lovely acoustic surroundings of St Conan’s Kirk.

Longer Tours

Columba’s Trail can help organise longer tours; be it a weekend or a week  to ten days. That way we get to know our clients.  We can tailor make tours to suit. If your interest is in castles Scotland abounds with them and Argyll has the cream of the crop. We can arrange an itinerary  which would take in some of the area’s best distilleries  followed by some visits to ancient stones, castles or round some of the areas  numerous beautiful forrest tracks.

We can guide you in your choice of accommodation that suits your pocket. Nothing can beat local knowledge.

  1. A wonderful day
    Christopher Hunt
    Had a fantastic trip around the coast, Christine was absolutely amazing. She knows so much about the history around argyll without even hesitating, what’s more is her understanding of the gaelic language which I found astonishing. Having taken my grandmother from South Africa on this tour she has been astounded by the beauty and culture of the area, and I have noticed how important it is for young teenager’s like myself to see such natural splendour around Scotland and how much of a difference it makes to my life to be able to have seen the west coast in such a way. This tour is definitely for a those who have a photography passion and an enthusiasm for for interesting drives and walks. There is no doubt a greater way to enjoy the west coast of Scotland.
