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.

Oban in southern Scotland is a sparkling city located on the Firth of Lorne. It's a very cosmopolitan little city with lots of shops, restaurants, a distillery, glass and pottery makers, and boat trips to seal colonies and small isles like Mull and Taynuilt where you will find Tobermory and it's painted houses. You can sit and watch the fishing... More

Had 3 hours stay in Oban its a pretty little place but i would say 2 hours is enough time to see everything. There is mostly outdoor wear shops, theres a couple of pubs not many places to eat. You can take a short stroll to McCaigs Town which gives spectacular views over the bay.

Our second trip with Timberbrush Tours (and Stephen) was to Oban and the West Highland Lochs and Castles - a lovely day trip, sprinkled with some rain. Some of the highlights of the tour include Firth of Clyde, Luss - where we stopped to take pictures, walk about the town and talk with the locals. We climbed higher into the... More
