Oban town centre is great for admiring the spectacular views and Victorian architecture, taking in the sights & viewpoints, watching boats in the bay, or a gentle stroll whilst enjoying fish & chips or ice-cream. With a bounty of accommodation, restaurants, bars and shops so close by, it couldn't be easier, to mingle with locals and enjoy the very best of Scottish hospitality or the sound of traditional music or events that take place throughout the year.
The town of Oban is surrounded by miles of dramatic coastline and beautiful countryside, so any visit must include the wider Oban & Lorn area which has must visit places such as Appin to the north, Loch Awe to east, and Kilmartin Glen to the south.
As a major port, the picturesque Oban bay is busy with Calmac ferries shuttling to many of the Inner and Outer Hebridean Islands. The nearby islands of Kerrera and Lismore are gateway to island-hopping and perfect for walking and cycling.
