Breathe in the pure autumn air along the picturesque banks of Rennie and Telford's Crinan Canal, linking the Firth of Clyde and the Western Isles during the heyday of sail.

A world away, walk in the wilderness of rugged Jura, home to thousands of wild red deer, dwarfed by the power of the three Paps. Discover the rich heritage of Islay, renowned for its birdlife and single malt whiskies, on a tour taking in Finlaggan, centre of the Lordship of the Isles and the unusual 18th century round church at Bowmore, with lunch ashore.

From Ardfern at the mouth of Loch Melfort explore the ancient treasures of Kilmartin Glen, ranging from prehistoric standing stones to Dalriada, the first Scottish kingdom. The MacDougall stronghold of Kerrera, guarding the entrance to Oban Bay, is peaceful on afternoon walks. Step onto St Moluag's Lismore, where the award-winning Cottar's Cottage at the Heritage Centre portrays 19th century island life, and cruise the Sound of Mull and rugged Ardnamurchan in the afternoon.

At the head of Loch Nevis, 'Loch of Heaven', stroll at Inverie in wild Knoydart, still unconnected by road to mainland Britain. Step back into headier Edwardian days at Rum's Kinloch Castle, opulently built in red Annan sandstone by Sir George Bullough, a fitting memorial to its decadent epoch. The walkers' haven of Eigg, former seat of the MacDonalds, Lords of the Isles, offers a morning of tranquil walks before the vibrant waterfront of Tobermory on Mull, with shopping and strolls, en route for Oban.
