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.

We had fantastic weather, so this made our trip superb. However, even in the rain we think the tour would still be good. The commentary was very interesting, all about the local history and plenty of insiders snippets of information. We found the views from the top deck great, seeing the sea and the city of Oban. Lots of places... More

My wife and I were touring Scotland by train so without a car we were restricted in how we got around. We were told about the City Sightseeing tour but with Oban being quite a small town we were not sure what we could expect. We were not disappointed. The tour was over two and a half hours and the...

Today I tried to book the Oban Cityseeing tour (as i have used this in other countires and its fab). However I was informed that this service has stopped on the 23rd of september which is absolutely SHOCKING at this weekend is the September weekend in most of Scotland. Cheers for the Cityseeing. VERY DISAPPOINTED.

This is a little different from the usual City Sightseeing tour, because it includes out-of-town sights such as the Connell Bridge and Seil Island (via the "Bridge over the Atlantic"). It takes a bit longer than usual - two and a half hours - but was well worth the cost.

Oban is a bustling coastal town, the gateway to the Islands and Highlands, with much to see and occupy the visitor. Wandering around the town are tourist information representatives, happy to give advice and assistance to the traveller. As it says on their shirts - Here to Help - and they do!

Very nice little town with a few very good fish restaurants. Ideal to use as a base for visiting the Islands. Staffa and Lunga are worth a visit but go in July if you want to see the Puffins.

The area has a lot of attractions such as churches and castles and although we did not take a boat trip, there are also loads of other attractions on the isalnds in the area.
