Oban cottages

This busy port known as the 'The Gateway to the Isles' is a perfect spot for exploring Argyll to the South and the Highlands to the North. It is here that many a Scottish island adventure starts, as it's a great base for exploring the neighbouring islands of Mull, Iona and Staffa, with its unique and world-famous Fingalls's Cave rock formations. The crescent-shaped hills that surround Oban Bay form the port town and here you'll find plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants, many of which overlook the picturesque bay. Oban has a reputation for some of the finest seafood, so it's no wonder it's known as the 'Seafood capital of Scotland'. Along with plenty of challenging hillside walks, you can also try your hand at kayaking, gorge walking and coasteering. Tempted to take a break in this picturesque destination?
