Oban in detail

Tucked into a bay at the top of the Argyll Peninsula on the central west coast of Scotland, Oban is a ferry port for the islands and a centre for Gaelic history and culture. As you approach the town you will see McCaig's Tower, a replica of the Colosseum of Rome, built in 1900 by a local banker.

Argyll, home of the Clan Campbell, was once the ancient Scottish Kingdom of Dalriada. In mist-shrouded Kilmartin Glen, one of the most beautiful in Scotland, see the ruins of Dunadd Castle, where a weathered rock inscribed with a boar head marks where Scottish kings were crowned until the 11th century. Nearby, stone circles attest to a civilization dating back 5,000 years. Then travel to Loch Fyne, where the present head of the Campbells, the Duke of Argyll, makes his home at Inverary Castle. The 19th century castle was admired by Sir Walter Scott as a fine example of the Scottish baronial style.

Hebridean Island Cruises 'Hebridean Princess' sails from Oban for spectacular cruise itineraries to the Scottish Islands and Highlands. Hebridean Princess is a regular sight in the seas of the west coast, her cultural and scenic itineraries include the 'Footloose' selection.  

These offer the chance for you to enjoy guided walks in some of the most remote and stunning places in the British Isles. There really is no better way of exploring the Scottish highlands and islands than aboard Hebridean Princess.
