We have a hard time keeping a secret. The RAS Kodiak team just returned from a remarkable trip to Glenforsa, Isle of Mull, Scotland.
Glenforsa Offers Scottish Scenery and Spirits
A privately-owned 780 meter grass airfield is your entrance to Glenforsa, located on the lovely Isle of Mull.
A rugged Kodiak 100 turboprop easily handles airstrips like this. In fact, with its remarkable short takeoff and landing (STOL) capabilities, you only need about half that length.
Or with a Kodiak’s optional floats, you could just as easily land on the adjacent water.
Sheltered in private woodland, the Glenforsa Hotel operates the convenient unlicensed airstrip.
They also offer a variety of COVID-safe rooms, a separate lodge, and full bar and restaurant services with uninterrupted sea views.
Make this your base for wildlife viewing, relaxation, and historical tours.
Tour a Famous Castle, Cave, and Distillery
Start your tour at Duart Castle. For over 700 years, the castle has been the ancient home of Clan Maclean. Then go from man-made marvels to natural wonders at Fingal’s Cave. Located on the uninhabited island of Staffa, the ancient sea cave is visually astounding. The basalt columns and pillars make this 60 million-year-old geometric wonder look like a modern masterpiece.
Of course, Scotland is as well known for its spirits as its scenery. So now it’s time to taste some delicious Tobermory and Ledaig whisky – taken straight from the cask. Established in 1798, the Tobermory Distillery produces these unique whiskies along with a fine Hebridean gin.
Enjoy a tour and tasting near the center of quaint yet vibrant Tobermory.
The Perfect Escape Vehicle With Wings
