kid in oban

We plan to stay at Oban for a week with our seven-years-old girl in early June. We have our own car ready to drive no more than 3 hours two ways a day. We love walking but our girl needs more than that. We will definitely go to the islands. Any other ideas for the kid?

There's the Scottish Sea Life Sanctuary: http://www.sealsanctuary.co.uk/oban1.html

Several companies offering boat trips to see seals, birds etc.

A visit to the Oban Chocolate Company is a must: http://www.obanchocolate.co.uk/ (they do kids workshops at times, nothing mentioned for the coming summer, but get in touch with them too hear if they've got any plans on doing such a thing during your stay).

The leisure centre might offer something your daughter might fancy: http://www.atlantisleisure.co.uk

Several castles in the area: http://www.oban.ws/castles.html

Getting locked up in Inveraray Jail is fun: http://www.inverarayjail.co.uk/

Are they into Ballamory? If so then a trip to Tobermory on Mull.

We enjoyed a nice boat trip on nearby Loch Etive where we saw seals.

Thanks for the advice. They sound interesting. My girl has recently learnt to bike. Is there any trail nearby Oban for her to try out? Any bike shop recommended?
