Tours to Oban

The original fishing village of Oban on the rugged west coast has grown into a vibrant town that’s the ‘seafood capital of Scotland’ and ‘Gateway to the Isles’. Travelers from around the world flock to its busy port to begin their island-hopping adventures to the Inner and Outer Hebrides.

This is where our small group catches the ferry to the islands on our four day tour of Mull, Iona and the Highlands and on our six day island hopping tour of Mull, Iona, Skye, the Highlands and Loch Ness, all of which depart from Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Discover Scotland Tours also offers a one day tour from Glasgow to Oban, the Western Highlands, Lochs, Castles and Glencoe. On this tour we stop in Oban for lunch.

As your luxury mini coach arrives in the town, whose name means ‘little bay’ in Gaelic, you can’t miss the granite monument of McCaig’s Tower, a folly that was never completed. It’s worth walking up to this Colosseum-like structure for the panoramic views to the misty isles.

In the lanes below you can shop for local crafts and gifts or simply sit on the seawall, breathe in the crystal air and gaze out to the small island of Kerrera and beyond. Seafood lovers might enjoy savouring some of Scotland’s tastiest oysters and mussels in Oban’s excellent restaurants around the picturesque harbour.
