The Essential
Interesting
The lovely old Victorian town of Oban is built around the bay of the same name, surrounded by green hillsides. Its main activities are focused around the port, a natural harbour protected by Kerrera island, where the incessant toing-and-froing of fishing boats and ferries is fascinating to watch. Serving the hinterland and islands, the capital of Argyll is now entirely devoted to tourism. It makes an ideal holiday destination and is well-located for excursions to the region's many attractions.
