Immerse yourself in Oban and Lorn

Mountains sweep down to the fishing port of Oban, known as ‘Scotland’s Seafood Capital’. This Victorian resort is full of life, with ferries to the Hebrides coming and going, bars and streets packed with shops. North of Oban, two picturesque peninsulas – Benderloch and Appin – offer great walking and cycling. 

The island of Kerrera sits in Oban Bay. Lismore is another gem. Further south you can cross the ‘Bridge over the Atlantic’ to the island of Seil. The waters around Oban and Lorn offer awesome sea kayaking. Paddle to islands, explore sea caves and set off on the Argyll Sea Kayak Trail.

Getting Here

The traditional route is by car or bus via the A82, then either the A83 via Inveraray before heading north via Dalmally to join the A85, or continue north on A82 to join the A85 at Tyndrum.

For a slight detour, follow the A83 to Lochgilphead, follow the Crinan Canal before travelling through Kilmartin Glen and northwards to Oban and Lorn.

Or sit back and relax on a regular train or bus journey from Glasgow to Oban.
