Oban is a town in the Scottish Highlands, which sits in one of the most picturesque settings imaginable. The houses and buildings are arranged untidily over the slopes of the hills and cliffs, which are sprinkled with trees and grass. Everything crowds eagerly around the harbour, which is located in a perfectly shaped horseshoe bay.

This port has long been the heart of the town. Oban was used extensively during World War II, for the gathering of merchant ship convoys and by the navy. This period in the town’s history is remembered at the War and Peace Museum, through a well-maintained collection of objects and photographs.

Today, the main commercial centre of Oban is based along the sea-front from the many hotels and guest houses of the Esplanade to the shops, restaurants and bars of the town centre

Royal Hotel

The Royal Hotel was built in 1895 and its restaurant retains its high ceilings and large windows with views of the town. The bar and lounge have coal fires and serves light meals and a full Scottish breakfast. Evening entertainment includes classic Scottish tunes.

Rooms at the Royal Hotel have traditional décor, many with tartan furnishings/curtains. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms, some have sea views, and all have TV and free Wi-Fi.

Close too the port, the Royal Hotel offers easy access to Iona and the Islands of Mull, a 10-minute walk will take you to the Oban Distillery and the War and Peace Museum.
