Oban is situated on the dramatic far west coast of Scotland, overlooking the Sound and island of Kerrera. Its name is derived from the Gaelic meaning ‘little bay” but we can assure you, there is nothing little about this bay! Surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery you are ever likely to see in Scotland, this area is well worth a visit.

Compact and easy to navigate, the town is filled with galleries, local shops, eateries, pubs, a museum and a local distillery so there is plenty to see and do here. Or take a relaxing stroll along the scenic seafront to its sandy beaches and the ruins of Dunollie Castle. In the evening, the town comes alive and is a host to many festivals and ceilidhs (social gatherings) with traditional musicians, bagpipers and highland dancers providing street music and entertainment.

Also known as the ‘Gateway to the Isles', ferries run from Oban to islands such as Kerrera, Mull, Iona, Staffa and the inner Hebridean islands where there is every possibility you will spot sea life such as seals, porpoises, dolphins, sea eagles and basking sharks. The islands surrounding Oban offer some fantastic walking routes and due their remote location and limited accessibility, remain some of the most unspoilt and untouched landscapes in the UK.

An absolutely amazing place to stay, probably the best holiday let we've yet used. The location is perfect and the accommodation beautiful. Relaxing in front of the fire watching the boats go past, couldn't ask for more.

Second visit so clearly a good place to stay. Always something to see from the turret table seats and plenty of places to visit nearby. Visit Lismore and Kerrera for easy walks. Easy access to Oban for restaurants and shopping; chocolate shop for anyone who likes good chocs is not to be missed. Would recommend for two couples. Yes the heating unit Read moreis quite noisy but we weren't particularly conscious of it. Hide
