The Wee Hotel Company’s Pierhouse Hotel and Seafood Restaurant at Port Appin have teamed up with an Oban-based sea tour operator Coastal Connection to provide guided tours of the region’s coastline and Island. The guided tours will depart from the Pierhouse in Appin and from Oban harbour from this month.
Private charter full day trips to Tobermory, Mull or Coll will offer families and groups of up to 12 passengers the opportunity to see harbour seals, basking sharks, minke whales, porpoise, otters and dolphins, as well as Glensanda Super Quarry and Duart Castle. Two-hour trips around the island of Lismore are also offered.
Fiona Maclean, General Manager of The Pierhouse Hotel, said, “Wide-open coastal locations and fresh, clean sea air will be top of the list for people in search of a short break as soon as travel restrictions are lifted, so our new partnership with Coastal Connection will offer our guests a fresh view of the breathtaking Argyll coastline, including Lismore, Mull, Tobermory and Coll.
“Tour guides are a vital part of the visitor experience in Scotland. Their informed local knowledge and personal connection helps to provide a bespoke experience while understanding the needs of both local people and the wider Scottish environment.
