Start your Scottish Adventure in with Vacation Homes in Oban
Known worldwide for its rich golden whiskey, Oban is the Scottish destination of dreams. Your vacation cottage in this rugged highland retreat opens the door to dramatic scenery of richly coloured forests and deep lochs, tartan kilts and ancient stories of intrigue.
Eating like a local
The history of Oban has been tied to the sea since the Bronze age. Scottish salmon is exported worldwide, while the rocky coast of Argyll is ideal for oysters, scallops and mussels, which are considered the best in Scotland. And of course, Scotch fare is best followed by a warming whiskey.
Explore the Scottish highlands
The Scottish Sea Life Sanctuary is perfect for a rainy day, but if you're up for a hike, go to Inverawe Smokehouse and Bonawe Iron Furnace at Taynuilt, which transports visitors back to ancient times. The Hollow Mountain at Loch Awe is a highly photogenic rock formation, while Inveraray Castle is steeped in history.
The history of the famed MacDougall family is recorded in this exciting relic from the past, which overlooks Kerrera, North Lorn and the islands further out to sea. An exciting exhibition engages the whole family, who will love exploring the hidden gardens and enchanting Dunollie woodlands.
Just try pronouncing the name Dunstaffnage without a Scots accent – it’s the best way to get into character. Complete with chapel, this typical Scottish castle was another MacDougall stronghold. Built before 1240, and captured by Robert the Bruce in 1308, the castle remained in royal hands for over a century. Take in the strategic position yourself from its ramparts.
Situated on Oban's Battery Hill, this tower was commissioned by the philanthropic banker John Stewart McCraig. Erected in 1902 just before his death, his intention was to provide a lasting monument to his family and provide work for the local stonemasons throughout the winter months. Construction was halted at the time of his death, so only the outer structure was completed.
The best way to take in the local culture is to drink Oban's whiskey. The magic happens atop a steep cliff that overlooks Oban, where you can explore the whiskey making process from tasting the malt through to the varieties of distillates. These not only make ideal presents, but you can continue enjoying your highland adventure long after you return home with a snifter of the gold stuff.
Oban is one of the best places in the world to spot this rare and distinctive bird, with its red legs and throat, black body and white-spotted wings. The harbour in particular is a favourite with wildlife photographers as it is thronged with them. The Black Guillemot has become something of symbol of Argyll – keep your eyes peeled.
