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!
