Travelling to Oban on the west coast of Scotland is a joy. Around three hours by car, coach or train from Glasgow or Edinburgh and less than 2 hours from Stirling, the scenic journey is a memorable part of a visit to this bustling seaside town.
Oban is easily reached from Central Scotland by taking the A82 which skirts the west side of Loch Lomond. Then either via Tyndrum or follow the A83 over the ‘Rest and be Thankful’ through Inveraray. Both journeys take between 2 and 3 hours, although you may be tempted to stop several times to admire the scenery. We do not have onsite parking but there are a number of car parks nearby.
We are located on Station Road which means we are within walking distance from the train station, in fact, you will spot us as you walk through the station doors. There are regular direct trains from Glasgow Queen Street Station
If you are coming into Oban from the other islands, you will see Perle Oban as you embark off the ferry – you can be in your room within minutes.
