Self Catering Holiday Cottages in Oban

Frequently referred to as the 'Gateway to the Isles', Oban is a beautiful resort town on the west coast of Scotland, split into a north and south area. Spreading up the hills that surround the crescent-shaped Oban Bay, the most famous part of the town’s skyline is McCaig’s Tower which looks like an ancient colosseum and offers incredible views of the surrounding area and nearby islands. Oban is also often called the 'Seafood Capital of Scotland', so as well as the historic attractions, popular distillery and watersport activities on offer, there is also a huge range of top-rated cafes and restaurants where you can enjoy dishes focusing on ingredients plucked straight from the sea less than a mile away for your table.
