  Totally agree with the advice so far. If you want to see Mull, Iona and Staffa - stay on ferry crossing from Oban is minutes, with a bit of faffing about at either end. With a car you need to check in half an hour before the crossing, so you're looking at losing 3 hours each day on ferries day tripping from Oban.. You'll get much more out of a trip to Iona doing it independently. Cost. £ single £ sharing with partner/friend (Please note on the booking form the name of the person you want to share with). Full board including packed lunches for excursions, entry to Duart Castle and Iona Abbey, ferry to Iona, cruise to Staffa and Lunga, transport to .
