Welcome to the town of Oban, Argyll

Your first view of Oban is one you will truly never forget. From the North, you glimpse the unforgettable view from the top of the "Bealach-an-Righ". As you come down the hill towards the expanse of the bay, the view opens up before you and it becomes clear why it is so easy to appreciate why Oban has developed into Scotland's most popular West-Coast holiday town.




Oban has a resident population of 8,500 and is the "Gateway to the Isles" with panoramic views of the mountains, Lochs and Islands .

Oban is a wonderful place to visit, with its stunning West Coast sunsets, excellent sea food and a huge variety of accommodation. It also gives easy access to all the nearby Islands. Oban is the biggest hub on the West Coast of Scotland giving access to all the Inner and Outer Hebrides.
