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!

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.
