Lovely town excellent fish and chips plenty of souvenirs to be had from some really sweet little shops. No shortage of gift ideas Love the different tartans Pretty views on the sea front. Had a lovely return visit it is just as quaint as I remembered it being.

We are very grateful for the great time my husband and I had on Sat the 2nd of April when we traveled to Oban. Our driver/guide was an excellent professional. We learnt a lot of Scotland history with a good sense of humour! Highly recommend this trip to everyone. Thank you. IF.

i would not recommend this tour to anyone they use to have a double decker bus that went down to Easdale with an fantastic lady driver who's driving was second to none and here commentary and history of the area was the best now they have what looks like a tow truck and the drivers are not as good

Oban is a very busy sea port with ferries to the islands. Its the only real town if you are traveling the west coast road for miles. It has many small eateries and fish bars a good sized shopping area but its dirty looking some investment would not go amiss. Take care on the one way system its easy to... More

My sincere thanks to our colleagues who advised us to include Oban in our itinerary. A small little town on west coast where A819 ends and you can take A828 for Fort William. Its a Fairy tale small town with vast sea coast and lot of activity in the Sea. If you are an artist, you will keep painting. If... More

Love the atmosphere in Oban. So many cultures and loads to see and do. Lovely friendly people. So many places to eat you could spend a fortnight there and never eat in the same place twice.

oban is an old town where you can catch one of the many ferries to the various islands or just shop and perhaps sample the fish and chips

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!
