My sincere thanks to our colleagues who advised us to include Oban in our itinerary. A small little town on west coast where A819 ends and you can take A828 for Fort William. Its a Fairy tale small town with vast sea coast and lot of activity in the Sea. If you are an artist, you will keep painting. If... More

Love the atmosphere in Oban. So many cultures and loads to see and do. Lovely friendly people. So many places to eat you could spend a fortnight there and never eat in the same place twice.

oban is an old town where you can catch one of the many ferries to the various islands or just shop and perhaps sample the fish and chips

Get yourself along to the Oban Chocolate Company. As dedicated chocaholics, this place even had us beat. What's for lunch? Chocolate. What's for pudding? Chocolate. Nom nom nom!

Oban is a delightful place to visit with wonderful views down the loch towards the sea. The fish is straight off the boat and the crab sandwich I had was overfull (if you can overfill a crab sandwich!). There was a good selection of shops and the Whiskey museum was very interesting.

We recently visited Oban on a 2 week road trip of Scotland...this is a great little Harbour town with neat restaurants, shopping, ferries out to islands, and sight seeing. This would be a great place for a getaway weekend for couples, girls getaway, etc. We stayed at a quaint hotel right near the water, the Kelvin Hotel, and while there... More

We drove here but I think taking the train would have been a better option. This is a lovely city that is fun to walk around.

If you go to Oban then I suggest you go in late spring to early autumn because if you go onto the Quay side there is a green shack with a large wooden table outside which serves probably the freshest seafood you will ever have, from the boat to the kitchen onto the table.
