Hotels in Oban
Oban is a scenic resort town in the Argyll and Bute area of western Scotland. The town not only has a picturesque setting, but is home to some fascinating historical attractions. Added to this its status as the ‘Seafood Capital of Scotland', and you'll soon realise that Oban hotels offer more than your average.
The best way to see the many historic buildings scattered around the town is on foot. McCaig's Tower looks over the whole of Oban Bay and also offers spectacular views of the islands of Mull and Kerrera.
If you are here in the summer, make sure you hear the Oban Pipe Band play the top of the tower at sunset, you don't get more of a quintessentially Scottish experience than this.
There are two castles in Oban and both are easily reachable on foot. Dunrollie Castle is the closest to the town centre, situated at the opposite end of the bay from the train station. It too stands on a hill and is well worth a visit.
Dunstaffnage Castle is not as old as Dunrollie but is no less impressive. It is about three miles outside of Oban, to the north. A walk here and back is the perfect way to spend a blustery winter's afternoon.
Gateway to the Isles
Oban is known as the ‘Gateway to the Isles' since ferries run from its harbour to Mull, Islay and most of the Outer Hebrides. These islands are famed for their rugged beauty, excellent whisky and world-class golf courses.
Some companies based in the town offer guided tours of the islands and their wildlife. One of the best of these is Mull & Iona & Staffa Island Tours, whose knowledgeable guides will tell you all you need to know. Oban provides as good a base as any from which to visit these unique places.
This part of the world is where whisky originated and Oban is home to one of the most prestigious scotch distilleries. The Oban Distillery is known worldwide for its iconic product and if you are a fan of scotch, you must take a tour of this fascinating building.
‘The Seafood Capital of Scotland'
As if Oban didn't have enough going for it, it is also known as the ‘Seafood Capital of Scotland'. If you are a fan of fish as fresh as it comes, then look no further than the kiosks on the Railway Pier. These serve up delicious crab, mussels and cockles caught mere metres from where you are standing.
For a slightly more formal meal, a short walk away is the Waterfront Restaurant which houses an excellent seafood restaurant upstairs and a funky bar downstairs. Ee-usk is also close by and is a great place for lunch.
There are many top class pubs in Oban, most of which are near the harbour front. Of these, Lorne is a local favourite and the perfect place for a nightcap.
