Silversea Luxury Cruises À OBAN (Argyll)

OBAN (Argyll)

Oban, "little bay" in Gaelic, today has a resident population of 8,500 and is the unofficial capital of the West Highlands - the "Gateway to the Isles." The panoramic views of the mountains, lochs and islands which have captivated artists, authors, composers, and poets for centuries are as striking now as they were when Dunollie Castle, a ruined keep which has stood sentinel over the narrow entrance to the sheltered bay for around six hundred years, was the northern outpost of the Dalriadic Scots.

It is no surprise to find Oban in the 21st-century remains a magnet for travellers from all over the world. The town's present day popularity owes much to the Victorians, and as early as 1812, when the Comet steamship linked Oban with Glasgow, the town played host to intrepid travellers touring Staffa - the inspiration for Mendelssohn's Hebridean Overture - and Iona - home of Scottish Christianity since St Columba stepped ashore in AD563. Indeed once Oban had the royal seal of approval from Queen Victoria, who called it "one of the finest spots we have seen," the town's destiny as an endearingly enchanting holiday destination was as firmly set as the lava columns of Fingal's Cave in Oban is justifiably known as the “gateway to the Isles.” The town's south pier is the embarkation point for car ferries to Mull, Coll, Tiree, Barra, South Uist, Colonsay, Lismore and Islay. From these islands you can travel further a field to Iona, Staffa and to many of the smaller less well known isles.

Excursions depuis OBAN (Argyll)

Inveraray Castle

Enjoy a scenic drive from Oban to Inveraray, travelling along the shores of the narrow Loch Etive to Taynuilt, with its fine views over mighty Ben Cruachan. Drive over the Pass of Brander past Loch Awe and see the striking ruins of Kilchurn Castle before arriving at Inveraray in the wooded Glen of Aray on the unspoilt shores of Loch Fyne. A short distance from the picturesque town of Inveraray stands the imposing castle. Enjoy a brief historic overview of the small town and local area before heading to the castle.


Located in 16 acres of parkland, the imposing castle combines Baroque, Palladian and Gothic architecture and has been home to the Dukes of Argyll since it was built in the 18th century. Beautifully presented, the Castle is home to a fine collection of family portraits and tapestries, French 18th-century furniture and an impressive collection of arms and armour. The formal gardens have been recently opened to visitors and you may also visit these during your time at the castle.

Kilmartin Glen - Scotland's Stonehenge


The area surrounding the village of Kilmartin in Argyll is incredibly rich in ancient monuments and can justifiably be called Scotland's Stonehenge. The area is home to hundreds of monuments including cairns, megaliths, inscribed stones and hill-top forts. Their origins and meanings remain uncertain although in many cases their orientation and alignment seem to link people with the cycle of the seasons and the movements of the sun, moon and stars.


Your journey will take you south along the beautiful coast before heading inland where you will travel back over 5,000 years to discover the mystery of Kilmartin Glen.


A visit to the small Kilmartin House Museum with its excellent displays will set the scene and give you an insight into the life of the inhabitants of the Glen.


On foot, accompanied by your expert guide, visit three of these prehistoric monuments in Kilmartin Glen taking in the Nether Largie Stones, Temple Wood with its stone circles and the Nether Largie South Cairn. You will hear of the history and theories of these remarkable monuments and their place in this unique landscape.

Afterwards….time for a beer?

Their beers are built on the British Cask Ale tradition, Britain's contribution to the global beer culture! Visit the modern brewery and enjoy some samples in an idyllic setting.

Oban Walking Tour And Distillery

On arrival at the pier you will be met by your guide for a thrilling tour of Oban. Walk with your guide up the steep hill to McCaig's Tower, commissioned by a local banker and philanthropist to provide winter work for the local stonemasons. The steep climb is well worth the effort for the views over the busy harbour and out to the nearby islands. Returning to the seafront your guide will take you to visit St Columba's Cathedral, the seat of the Roman Catholic Bishop of Argyll and the Isles. The simple interior of the Cathedral contrasts with its bold exterior of pink Peterhead and blue Inverawe granite.


Then it's time to visit Oban Distillery where you will enjoy a guided tour, allowing you to experience the stages of production of Scotland's national drink. No distillery tour would be complete without the opportunity to taste the final product... Slàinte!


After your tour of the distillery, you might want to explore this bustling seaside town further or return to the pier with your guide.

Scottish Highlands & Glencoe with Visitor Centre

Departing Oban, your coach will take you through the picturesque scenery of the Pass of Brander and around the tip of Loch Awe with views of Kilchurn Castle before continuing to Tyndrum where a short stop is made.


The route climbs to Rannoch Moor; the Great Moor is one of the last remaining wildernesses in Europe. Your coach will take you into the majestic Glencoe - scene of the infamous 1692 massacre and now a centre for serious mountaineering providing some of the finest climbing and walking in Scotland. A stop is made at the award-winning Glencoe visitor centre to learn more about the history, geology and nature of this region.

Leaving the visitor centre the route continues along Loch Linnhe. You will see the islands of Lismore and Mull as you follow the shoreline of this sea loch. You will pass Castle Stalker, a tower house situated on its own islet set against a dramatic backdrop of mountains before arriving back in the coastal town of Oban.
