Travel Tips from people who've been to Oban
If You're wanting a cheap place to stay in Oban, I'd suggest the quirky Jeremy Inglis Hostel. I stayed here in 2002. It was very cheap, and the breakfast included home baked scones, freshly baked that morning, the biggest selection of teas I've ever seen, and each bed had a 'cuddly toy' on it! I think prices are now £7pp pn shared, or £12 single Open All Year round 200 metres from train station Discount admission to Mc Tavishes Kitchens (one of Jeremy Inglis's businesses- a meal (with a Scottish flavour) and Scottish entertainment - music, Scottish dancing - a bit cheesey, but an entertaining night out! email email@example.com
I can't pinpoint quite what charmed me so much about this quaint, seaside town, but I loved it so much I made a point of detouring back for a second time during the same trip to Scotland. I loved walking along the waterfront. They make a lovely whiskey, but don't expect too much from the food.
Take a trip to Isle of Mull or Iona while you are at Oban. It's easy to catch the ferry across. If you're in to religious history then this is the place for you, there is a beautiful old monastries on Mull. Iona is great for bird watching, particuarly Puffns.
