Oban lies on the west coast of Scotland in a sheltered bay in the lee of the island of Kerrera. Just 49 miles south of Fort William, this attractive coastal town has been one of Scotlands most popular resorts since Victorian times. It has also long served as an important port and harbor, providing services to Scotlands West Highlands and Hebrides regions. One of the top things to do in Oban is to take one of the many popular boat excursions from Oban to the small islands of Staffa and Iona. Along the way, you will be rewarded with superb views of the beautiful east coast of Mull. Oban also makes for a good base for sightseeing excursions into the Highland mountains and lochs.
