Oban is a resort town within the Argyll and Bute council area of Scotland. Start off your visit on the 12th (Wed): brush up on your military savvy at Oban War & Peace Museum, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Oban Distillery, and then don't miss a visit to McCaig's Tower.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, photos, and tourist information, read our Oban trip itinerary tool.

The wild and rugged coastline of Argyll and Bute has provided many works of fiction, including the novels of Robert Louis Stevenson, with some very dramatic settings. With a history of ancient clan rivalries, this region still maintains its fierce spirit of independence and a deep respect for the old Gaelic culture. Nowhere is this more evident than in the region’s road signs, which are written in both Gaelic and English, with Gaelic place names often listed first. Though the region is separated from the mainland only by a narrow strait, much of it seems a world away from the rest of the country.
