Given Oban's rich heritage, it is a great place for admiring the spectacular townscape, harbour views and Victorian architecture.
Enjoy the sights & viewpoints, watching boats in the bay, or a gentle stroll whilst enjoying fish & chips or ice-cream.
For those easy going types, who like to chill out and relax. Start your day by taking a stroll along Oban's picturesque esplanade, or capture a photo of McCaig’s Tower up on the hill in all its glory! After a stroll around the town visiting the local shops, you can enjoy a meal or drink in one of the many restaurant or bars.
For the moderately active, Oban town centre is also surrounded by miles of dramatic coastline so there are a mixture of adventures. Enjoy a leisurely walk to Pulpit Hill or you can head to Ganavan Sands for a stroll along the beach, taking in the beautiful sights across to the isles. On your return, it couldn't be easier to mingle with locals and enjoy the very best of Scottish hospitality or take in a lively traditional music or entertaining events that take place throughout the year.
For history lovers, there are an abundance of historic sights or places to visit to enrich your knowledge. You’ll want to visit the Oban War & Peace Museum, Dunollie Castle or just out of town you will find Dunstaffnage Castle.
For the adventure seekers and island hoppers, you are best suited to cram in as much action and adventure as possible. Take the short ferry trip over to the Isle of Kerrera where you can explore the island on foot and visit the amazing Gylen Castle. Alternatively, take a boat trip to Mull, Iona & Staffa to see the magnificent wildlife, abbey, puffins or Fingal's cave.
