Oban is known as the Gateway to the Isles, as it is the chief spot for ferries to the Outer Hebrides, Mull, Islay, Coll and Tiree, but it is also the shopping capital of the North West.
You can find some of the best fish you have ever tasted in Oban. There are local castles to visit, diving centres, island tours and speedboat rides. The famous Oban Distillery caters well to visitors, and there are some interesting land rover day trips one can arrange from Oban to explore Argyll.
Oban caters for the backpacker and the budget traveller, but also has some nice traditional hotels to stay in. The Oban Bay Hotel and Spa on Corran Esplanade has great views across to Mull and Kerrera. A short drive out of town is The Queen’s Hotel, a well preserved Victorian house with equally impressive views out across Oban Bay. For a town centre location, The Kelvin Hotel is one of the town’s oldest buildings and keeps its traditional roots. Arguably Oban’s most famous hotel is The Caledonian Hotel; situated beside the ferry port it offers 3-star accommodation in a beautiful and historic building.
