Welcome to Oban - the Seafood Capital of Scotland!

If you are planning a visit to Oban and Lorn on Scotland's west coast, this is the site for you. The Oban & Lorn Tourism Alliance Ltd has put together information on the scenery, landscapes and seascapes and the numerous activities that can be enjoyed in the ancient district of Lorn in the historic country of Argyll.

There are also accommodation lists for hotels, guesthouses, B&Bs and self catering properties in and around Oban as well as a wealth of information on places to eat, attractions and local shops and services. These directories can also be found within the Oban and Lorn sections of the regional tourism website Explore Argyll should you require information on the whole area.

We love Oban and we hope you will too!

Love Oban - Love Oban's Ambassadors!

This is the final month of the season for Oban's Town Ambassadors who have been providing a positive and cheerful welcome to visitors to the town all summer. Their work as mobile tourist information hubs is almost over for this year but we are sure they will be back next season providing visitors with information about the town itself, the local businesses and the attractions in and around Oban.

Our Ambassadors have a passion for Oban. They are lively and positive people who have a high degree of motivation and customer service skills. They will always go that extra mile to help!

gillswims.jpgCongratulations to Gill Spink who is the WINNER of our August Photo Contest

We love this photo of the first ever swim from Mull to Oban by 2 local girls! And we have to admit that the judges were won over by Gill's caption - which read:

"2 local girls who dared to dream....6 months later, a lot of training, good days and bad days, determination and friendship and it became a reality. A swim from Mull to Oban, the first ever time it's been done. What an adventure it's been! #ScotSpirit
