Nestled on the west coast and surrounded by miles of beautiful coastlines and countryside, seaside town Oban is Scotland’s best-kept secret. With award-winning whisky, breath-taking landscapes and outdoor adventures, when it comes to having an unforgettable break, the unofficial capital of the West Highlands - the “Gateway to the Isles” – is the perfect spot for you.
We've got cottages to suit everyone; from cosy cottages with roaring fireplaces to somewhere with stunning sea views and easy access to coastal and mountain walks, we know you'll find something you'll love from our selection.
If you’re holidaying in Oban, a stop at its famous distillery is a must. Founded in 1794, the Oban Distillery is one of Scotland’s oldest and smallest distilleries. Enjoy a guided tour to see the magic in action or sample the award-winning Scotch at the bar – the whole experience will have you taking a bottle or two home with you! Whilst the town’s history revolves around whisky, Oban is known today as the “seafood capital of Scotland’, so if you’re after a plate of Scottish mussels or freshly caught cod, head into town to sample the best of Scotland’s fresh seafood.
