About Oban

The area around Oban is famed for its beautiful coastline and spectacular rugged mountain scenery. Queen Victoria described it as "one of the finest spots we have ever seen", a sentiment which still rings true today.

No trip to the West Coast is complete without visiting the islands. Mull is 40 minutes away by ferry. It is a large island with 200 miles of roadway. It is really Scotland in miniature with white sandy beaches and rugged mountains.

Oban is Scotland's main port for the western islands including the Isle of Iona, a national treasure and the birth place of modern Christianity. Also the island of Staffa is world renowned for its geological marvel of Fingal's Cave.

Golfing, fishing, walking, boating, sailing, scuba diving, climbing, mountaineering, cycling, wildlife, castles, gardens all on our doorstep.

Visit the Isle of Eriska Spa and Restaurant

The very special Isle of Eriska Hotel stands on its very own island and is open to non residents for a spa experience including swimming pool, a round of golf and/or a meal in the Deck Restaurant or Michelin starred hotel restaurant. Only a 25 minute drive from Glenrigh Guest House, this is highly recommended by us!
