Oban

On breaks to Oban, visitors can pack as much or as little into their visit as they like. This small coastal town is a gateway to some of Scotland’s wildest and most beautiful islands and you can choose to take a day trip out, or plan a multi day island hopping itinerary from Oban. The picturesque town centre is built around the harbour and the catch of the day has itself made Oban famous with numerous award winning restaurants all in this small area. Oban also has its own distillery where visitors can indulge in tastings. There is also a chocolate company, and you will soon discover that whisky and chocolate make a surprisingly good pairing. As easy drive from Glasgow, breaks to Oban are closer than you think.
