I have just checked out a few sites for island hopping. Just wondering if you purchase a hopscotch route of Oban - Craignure, Tobermory - Kilchoan would it be a good idea to stay in Mull overnight to see Iona and Staffa then carry on through to Tobermory, the next Day and on to Mallig and Skye for 2 days Or are the hopscotch ticket only good for a 24 hour period ? I realize this is merely a pass not an actual tour and at each point if we took the car we would need to plan. So my question is is it possible to take in the full history and beauty without the benefit of a tour guide if we take the car and research, or
if its best to visit as passengers and take three island tours?
