Ring in the bells Oban style

How will you welcome in 2020? From ceilidhs and dance bands to trad sessions and fireworks, we’ve got the scoop on Oban’s best celebrations, so don your dancing shoes and join us as we say goodbye to 2019!

Markie Dans
Toast 2020 at Markie Dans with live music from Crooked Reel on Hogmanay, then blow out the cobwebs with round two on New Year's Day.

The View
Enjoy Oban's biggest Hogmanay celebration with a lively night of traditional Scottish cèilidh music and dancing with Ceol an Aire.

Perle Oban
Local trad band Creel will lead a session of lively Scottish music in their stylish lounge, so bring an instrument or you voice, or just your sense of fun for a night to remember.

The Barn Bar
The Barn Bar hosts three course dinner, music by Angus Smith and fireworks at midnight. Stay at one of the chalets next door at Cologin to make a weekend out of it.

Loch Melfort Hotel
This Hogmanay, escape the hustle and bustle and treat yourself to friendly, attentive service and award winning festive food and drink against a backdrop of spectacular views over Asknish Bay.

Fireworks at midnight
Oban’s night sky will light up with fireworks at midnight from McCaig’s Tower. Get fantastic views from Station Square, the Esplanade or the piers and even in the harbour from your boat.

Happy New Year from all of us at Oban & Lorn Tourism Alliance!
