Isle of Skye to Oban

In March of 2019 we will be driving from Broadford, Isle of Skye to Oban. What should we see/do? Google maps says it is 3 hrs of driving time, is this accurate (I know we will make stops along the way but looking at actual driving time)? Thanks for any help you can give.

I'd say it's closer to 3.5 hours, maybe 4 if there is inclement weather

We drove from Skye (Portree) to Oban (breaking journey in Glencoe, I'd certainly add time there if your itinerary allows) last September. As we had driven to Skye over the bridge from Inverness, we opted for the car ferry route from Armadale to Mallaig while returning to the mainland. That's an option too - if the winter schedule works for you https://www.calmac.co.uk/mallaig-armadale-sk… We enjoyed driving through Morar/Arisaig/Glenfinnan en route. I find viamichelin.com more reliable for drive times than Google Maps.
