Top tips for finding the perfect Oban hotel

  • To see a particularly scenic side of Oban, consider booking a hotel next to McCaig's Tower, such as the affordable Balmoral Inn, which is located a 7-minute walk away.

  • For travelers that enjoy whiskey, make sure to choose a hotel next to the Oban Distillery, such as the Balmoral Inn, which is just 4 minutes away. Dating back to the 18th century, the Oban Distillery provides visitors with tours that highlight the whiskey-making process as well as whiskey tastings.
  • If you enjoy historical architecture, book a hotel next to the Dunollie Castle, such as the 4-star Barriemore B&B, located a 3-minute drive away. This castle contains a museum, restaurant and gift shop, making it a popular place to spend the day and learn about the city’s ancient history.
