Scotland: Oban, Skye, and the Scottish Isles

Rick Steves' Europe travel expert Julia Reams-Giersch presents this travel talk on Scotland's islands. We begin in Oban — a salty seafront town and the natural home base for exploring the isles — before heading across Mull to the lonely, lovely isle of Iona, where Christianity arrived in Scotland. On the Isle of Skye, the charming village of Portree is a good home base for exploring the island's grand scenery and fine countryside walks. And Julia offers tips on how to seek out the ultimate Scottish isle experience: a traditional music session or cèilidh dance.
