Oban Walking Trails

Starting at the North Pier and the Oban Visitor Information Centre, you can follow a Northern or Southern loop around Oban.

These trails have been designed to be accessible for your level of fitness, wants and needs - and of course make allowances for the weather!

As you enjoy your wander, you will learn more about the entrepreneurial businessmen who developed the town from its humble stone age cave dwelling origins.

You will follow in the footsteps of prominent Victorians as you promenade along the Esplanade and enjoy tales of Celtic monks, ancient Celtic giants and Irish myths and legends.

These rewarding walks take in all of the places of interest, landmarks and of course, you will enjoy the stunning views out over Oban Bay.
