The town of Oban

Oban photo
Oban harbour overlooked by McCaig's Tower

Oban is the ideal base for visiting Dunstaffnage Castle, Barcaldine Castle, Ardchattan Priory, Inveraray and many west coast islands.

Thanks to the ferry and railway, this is a busy town with many shops, banks, supermarkets, garages, a cinema and Post Office. It is the ideal place to stay and explore the surrounding area or to stop overnight if you are on your way to the Isle of Mull. Known as the Gateway to the Isles, it has a population of some 8,500.

Ferries leave Oban for the following islands: Islay, Colonsay, Coll, Tiree, Mull, Lismore, Barra and South Uist.

Many day excursions are possible from Oban by car. Visitors without transport will need to check out the local bus timetables. You can also take advantage of the Citylink coach services which operate on the road north to Fort William, on the road south to Lochgilphead in Argyll and Kintyre, and also inland to Inveraray.

Boats advertised around the harbour make regular trips over to Duart Castle on the Isle of Mull. It is also possible to visit Mull, Iona and Staffa on combined ferry and coach day-trips from Oban. More info....

Right by the railway, on the pier is a modern centre aimed at tourists with an audio-visual exhibition of the town's history, souvenir shops and tearooms.

The Oban Distillery Visitor Centre in Stafford Street (near the North Pier) is open Monday to Friday from March to November (plus some weekends in summer) for guided tours. There's an audio visual exhibition and gift shop. Telephone 01631 572 004.
The Oban War & Peace Museum is in the old Oban Times building, near the Regent Hotel and the North Pier. Open daily from March to November. Admission free.
You can also visit the chocolate factory and the cathedral which are located further along The Esplanade.

The bay is dominated by McCaig's Tower, a replica of the Colosseum of Rome. A banker called John McCaig had it built between 1897 and 1900 as a memorial to his family and to provide employment for the townsmen. It's quite a steep climb to the top of the hill, but there are a couple of benches where you can sit and get your breath back. On a clear day you can see over to Mull. Some books call it McCaig's Folly. He was born on the nearby island of Lismore.
