Oban Hotels

The pastel toned cobbled square of this medieval market town sees its fair share of visitors, many drawn to explore the long running history that peppers the narrow, winding streets shadowed by long standing Tudor buildings, others for the bustling and popular market. The glint of the River Severn coils gently around the 660 historically listed buildings that comprise parts of Shrewsbury, along with the pale red fortifications of the town's medieval castle, and the imposing Shrewsbury Abbey.

Things to see

The idyllic scenery of Oban means that taking a gentle stroll around the curve of the bay, before stopping at one of the many inviting local eateries to enjoy some juicy, fresh local seafood, is one of the most enjoyable pastimes. There's a number of historic sites to visit too, especially the watchful granite arches of McCaig's Tower that perch above the town and bay. Designed and built by local philanthropist and banker John Stuart McCaig, the influence of Greek and Roman architecture can be seen in the circular structure and its 94 elegant arches. One thing you won't want to pass up while in Oban, especially if you enjoy whiskey, is a trip to the Oban Distillery. Despite being one of the smallest in Scotland, it produces some of the finest whiskey in the country: 14 year old malt being a speciality.

Hotels in Oban

Thanks to its size, the majority of Oban hotels are located along the beautiful shimmering bay, which makes for some stunning evening views as the lights from the town catch the rolling waves of the ocean. You'll also find that most hotels offer bars and dining, which can compliment any evening. Free WiFi is available too, and even discount hotels and smaller bed and breakfasts will offer you a complimentary meal to start the day. If you're looking for an indulgent experience, then there's also a few luxury hotels in Oban that'll provide a full pampering experience, from saunas to spas.

Where to stay

If you're planning on taking advantage of local transport services to visit more of the surrounding area, then staying in the Shore Street area will mean you're very close to the station, as well as the bay and harbour area and accompanying ferry port. For those interested in meandering around the plethora of local shops and restaurants, then the Southern end of George Street is located right next to the centre of town. For outdoors enthusiasts, and couples seeking a cosy retreat, then staying in the vicinity of the historic St Columba's Cathedral offers a picturesque location close to lush countryside.

How to get to Oban

Most transport links to Oban originate in Glasgow, which has its own airport and can be reached from UK, and international destinations. Once you've landed, there are a few options: You can catch the West Highland Line to Oban Station, which is a great way to take in the wild and sweeping views of the Scottish countryside on the way to your hotel, or even a seaplane from the airport directly to Oban Bay. Alternatively, you can also find a (cheaper) coach service that takes around 3 hours from Glasgow. Oban is easily walk-able, and there's multiple ferry services to nearby islands.
