Tours are either themed or follow a set route selecting key features along the way. The brief route descriptions will provide you a taste of what to expect. Alternatively, you can commission your own tour with assistance of Argyll Safaris.
Comfortable casual clothing is recommended. All routes provide opportunities to disembark the vehicle so comfortable footwear and a waterproof jacket and trousers are also desirable. Certain routes like Glen Crearan will require boots with ankle-support but if there are any doubts with what
is suitable, Argyll Safaris can advise.
Your comfort is our priority; therefore the maximum number in your party is 4. In exceptional circumstances where there are 2 small children this number may be increased to 6 on day trips only.
On day tours a small bag to contain your waterproofs and miscellaneous items is all you require.
On multi-day tours we must restrict you to ‘cabin’ size luggage (55 x 40 x 25cm) per person. This can be increased depending on the size of your party. Free storage facilities are available on request.
No. Customers must provide their own food and refreshments for the duration of the tour.
However, there will be opportunities to stop at shops, cafes and restaurants on route. Customers with specialise dietary requirements are recommended bring a packed lunch.
No. Argyll Safaris can recommend a range of accommodation options to suit all budgets but customers must book their own accommodation. In exceptional circumstances Argyll Safaris can arrange accommodation for customers. See recommended accommodation links.
‘Local’ is defined as 10-miles from Connel. Costs for distances beyond 10-miles will be kept to a minimum.
For day tours the risk of not securing the tour and the accommodation is minimal. For multi-day tours it is essential that you contact Argyll Safaris to ensure that accommodation is available to support your tour. For Skye and the Outer Hebrides accommodation can be booked up 9 months before hand.
No. All distilleries have different entry fees and you the customer have the choice to choose which one and how many. Access to distilleries will incur an additional cost at the point of entry or added to the overall tour cost.
Argyll Safaris will continue to provide tours throughout the winter.
