Oban

Famous for its seafood and known as the gateway to the Western Isles, Oban is a popular tourist destination with lots of opportunities for walking, sightseeing, touring and relaxing.

From summer strolls along the beach to the harbour, to museums, lochs, castles, distilleries, and lovely local shops - there is always something to see and do.

Sail out to sea and discover the local wildlife and if you’re brave enough, Oban even has its own basking shark excursion!

Although the town's population is only around 8,500 (one of the Highlands' largest), tourism welcomes up to 20,000 visitors during the peak season.
