Located on the west coast and known as the ‘Seafood Capital of Scotland,’ Oban is the perfect destination for an unforgettable holiday. Surrounded by miles of coastline, Oban town and port features important historical intrigue with no less than five castles nearby, three of which were the seat of the Clan MacDougall of Lorne. Most popular attractions include the Oban War & Peace Museum, partially-ruined Dunstaffnage Castle, and Oban Distillery, where you can explore the history of whisky and learn exactly how it’s made. After a day exploring, browse the town’s small galleries and independent shops, and refuel in the evening in one of the many pubs, cafés or restaurants. From Oban, you can set sail and take a tour of the islands of Mull, Iona and Staffa, or travel up the coastline to Glencoe, with its deep valleys, towering mountains and ancient history.
