Join our fully trained and insured tourist guides and let them take you on a journey through Oban’s history from Mesolithic man to the present day.
Learn about the entrepreneurial businessmen who developed the town from its humble stone age cave dwelling origins. Follow in the footsteps of Queen Victoria, Boswell and Johnson, Sir Walter Scott, Robert Louis Stevenson and other prominent Victorians. Promenade along the Esplanade and enjoy tales of Celtic monks, ancient Celtic giants and Irish myths and legends. Take the steep but rewarding walk up to McCaig's Tower to enjoy the stunning views out over Oban Bay or accompany our guides on the ferry to the Isle of Kerrera and hike to the ruins of Gylen Castle. The choice is yours and we'll always work to your level of fitness, wants and needs - and of course make allowances for the weather!
