Visit Oban

We're Waiting for You...

A visit to Oban is full of firsts that will last a lifetime. Swim with basking sharks. Kick up your heels at a cèilidh. Kayak one of Britain’s most incredible coastlines. Sing along at a lively traditional session into the wee hours.

Oban is well known as the Seafood Capital of Scotland and the Gateway to the Isles. But there is so much more to discover, from world-class music festivals to exhilarating water sports to vibrant Gaelic culture.

Invigorate all your senses, including your sense of wonder, as you experience adventure, fun and spectacular scenery - all served with Highland hospitality and a dram of single malt whisky.

Be bold. Be authentic. Be unique. Be passionate. Be inspired.
