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.

Quiet and peaceful yet touristy, with lots to do and great places to eat. Fabulous scenery and some fantastic trips to the nearby Islands. Just love it here.

enjoyed this bus tour 2nd time I have done it but it was still good. Bit shorter stay would be better at the island as not much to do if you go on your own. When I went it was the Oban games so we got stuck in traffic coming back and driver kept apologising which was good.

We thoroughly enjoyed this bus trip lasting 2.5 hours. It takes you through Oban and then out to Loch Feochan, Bridge Over the Atlantic and Easdale Island (previously famous for its slate quarries). I admired the driver's skill on those small roads (!) and his almost non-stop commentary was excellent, full of all sorts of interesting anecdotes. Before heading back... More

You might want to go to Fort William but don't forget to visitOban. In my opinion it's a even more pleasant town to go, even a nice boulevard.
