Di, & myself went on a day trip on the Waverley Paddle Steamer, the last ocean going paddle steamer. The trip was a round trip from Oban taking in four lochs and the Corryvreckan whirlpool.  The trip traveled from Oban to Crinan loch, so we were able to see local landmarks from a different perspective. The journey through the straights of corryvreckan was calm and there was no sign of the whirlpool than can make the trip through it spectacular. Crinan was lovely with views of Duntroon castle, at this point we were four miles from home. The trip back up included visits to loch Craignish, around the Craignish point, past Craobh Haven, to Arduaine Gardens and into Loch Melford. Traveling around the island of Luing, we then headed north with Easdale island on our right, through the Sound of Kerrera, back to Oban.


It was a great day out that we really enjoyed. The Waverley do other trips from different ports near the Old Manse throughout the summer season
