Travel Tips for Oban

Weekend - Glasgow and Whisky distilleries

by suvanki

This was part of a forum answer
I'd suggest getting the train from Glasgow to Oban, (A lovely view of Loch Awe, and Loch Lomond, especially if the weather is good, and you get from the airport in time, before the light fades) and consider staying at Jeremy Inglis Hostel, which is a bit of a legend, for its Very cheap accommodation, quirkiness, and fantastic home baked scones etc.

The room I stayed in had 3 beds - all complete with a cuddly animal!! Check out mine, and other VTers Oban pages - also for upto date prices etc on this and other hostels etc Since my visit, I think it's now £9.50 -10.50 including breakfast.
Oban and Cambeltown are the 2 main Distillery towns in Argyleshire. Glasgow offers the nearby Glengoyne distillery.

From Oban, you can get the ferry across to Mull,(visit the Tobermory (or Lediag) distillery - estab 1798!) then Iona, also a short boat trip from the harbour to see basking seals.

I'd also reccommend eating at the Ubiquitous Chip in Glasgow on your first evening - Quality Scottish food, locally sourced, and a great atmosphere. I thoroughly enjoyed my 2 meals here. I also enjoyed my fresh crab salad sandwich, from the kiosk on Oban Harbour.

A locomotive ride to the castle...

This is the Isle of Mull which we had to take a ship to get here, so it is off the beaten waterways....this lovely dog followed the train all the way to the castle. I could see the castle in the distance. It was a great place filled with awesome natural beauty.

To the south west of the Nether Largie cairns is the perfectly formed Temple Wood Stone circle. There are actually 2 stone circles which were excavated as recently as the 1970s. They are belived to have been the main centre for burial from Neolithic times up to the Bronze Age.

The island of Kerrera provides Obans bay with natural shelter not to mention a stunning view! You can take a ferry (every 30 mins 10.30-12.30 & 2pm to 6pm) to the island and take the 6 mile circular walk passed the ruins of Gylen Castle


by hevbell

Another place to get views of Oban and the nearby islands is from Pulpit Hill, a viewpoint to the south of the town, beyond the ferry terminal. Its another sttttteeeep climb, one I didn't attempt! I took the car this time! :)
