Oban

A picturesque and bustling seaside town set within the heart of Argyll on the West Coast of Scotland. Known as the ‘Gateway to the Isles’ this coastal town provides visitors with the ultimate jumping off point for island hopping across the Western Isles of Scotland, from the nearby Isle of Mull, to Lismore and Kerrera. Visitors often enjoy exploring the charming cafes and restaurants in Oban, which serve up native specialties, including locally caught seafood, a key reason behind the town’s reputation as the ‘Seafood Capital of Scotland’.

Enjoy awe-inspiring views of the surrounding isles and along the windswept peninsula of Oban from McCaig’s Tower. Taking a walk along the esplanade is another favoured pastime for visitors who can enjoy a spot of wildlife watching as well as admiring the stunning seascapes and shopping for mementos in some of the unique local stores. We also recommend a trip to the famous Oban Distillery for a taste of one of their famous single malts.

We love Oban because...

  • Gateway to the Isles
  • Ideal for seafood lovers
  • Town centre whisky distillery
