Oban is known as the Gateway to the Isles. Ferries depart from here to Mull, Lismore, Coll, Tiree, Colonsay, Islay, South Uist and Barra so why not go island hopping?
Even if you don't have a car, you can take a day trip by coach to explore the scenery and castles of Mull, together with the legendary islands of Iona & Staffa. You could visit Fingal's Cave, see the puffins or maybe spot a whale. For a relaxing day, just take the ferry to Coll & Tiree and back while enjoying some fish and chips!
You can also drive down to the Slate Islands and cross The Bridge over the Atlantic.

Oban is a small but busy port with numerous places to visit, shops and restaurants. Numerous events such as music festivals take place throughout the year. The annual Highland Gathering is in August.

McCaig's Tower is Oban's most famous landmark and dominates the town's skyline. Your friendly host is Lorna Campbell who is a relative of the late John Stuart McCaig (the tower's founder).

Work commenced on the Tower in 1897 from locally quarried granite, and was halted three years later following John Stuart McCaig's death. The grand design, to feature 3 storeys with art gallery, museum and a 100ft observation tower, was never completed.

The structure remains as the best viewpoint in the town, affording panoramic views across the Sound of Kerrera, the Firth of Lorne and on to the islands.
