About Oban

With panoramic views of mountains, lochs and islands, it’s no wonder Oban is considered the “Gateway to the Isles”. This western hub has served as a springboard for exploring Scotland’s uninhabited corners, while all travellers enjoy Oban’s wealth of scenery, seafood and historical wonders.

Things to do

A peaceful day awaits anyone who arrives at the top of McCaig’s Tower. This prominent landmark overlooks Oban Bay and nearby islands. Wind your way through a circular formation of elegant stone arches, then stop for a bite to eat at the gardens inside the tower.

Take a ferry to the Isle of Mull and enjoy a pristine beach all to yourself. This sparsely populated island has been inhabited since the Ice Age when Mesolithic hunters settled in caves. Visit the Livingston’s Cave on Ulva to learn all about the island's original inhabitants. For spectacular views, cycle around the island before learning more about Mull’s relationship with the sea at the Mull Aquarium.

Stop and smell the roses at Argyll’s Glorious Gardens. Oban’s distinctly mild coastal climate makes it an ideal place for Victorian plant collections. Overlooking the scenic Sound of Jura, this plant paradise is home to over 20 gardens, 300 species of rhododendrons and some of the tallest trees in Britain.

Discover a 3D representation of Earth’s most extensive mountain chain at the Ocean Explorer Centre. Study the technology used to understand ocean currents and explore the alien seabed of the Firth of Lorn using an interactive touchscreen display.

Getting around

You can fly into Glasgow Airport, where buses and trains take you to Oban in around three hours. You can walk around Oban, as the town’s stores, beaches and distinct shoreline are all clustered together. Bikes and buses are available to venture further afield.
