A great experience for the whole family, this three-mile cycle route takes you from the centre of Oban, round Oban Bay on a minor road to Ganavan Sands, where you join a cycle path through woods and moorland to Dunbeg village. https://www.sustrans.org.uk/ncn/map/route/oban-to-dunbeg
There are several tranquil forest trails within a few miles of Oban town centre that are perfect for a refreshing walk.
