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.

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.
