Landmarks and sports: We are near McCaig’s Tower – one of Oban’s famous landmarks. It’s well worth a visit with its amazing panoramic views of the town. Hawthornbank is opposite the town’s bowling green and is 2 minutes walk from Atlantis Leisure Centre where there is a pool, racket sports and a gym.

About Oban: Oban has been described as the “seafood capital of Scotland” with many great restaurants, most of which have tasty fresh seafood on their menu. It is also known as the “Gateway to the Isles” and is a stop-over for visitors to the islands such as the Islands of Mull, Colonsay and Tiree.
To do: There are day trips to the islands from Oban throughout the summer to Mull, Iona and Staffa. This is a very popular day out and very well organised by the local tour operators. Staffa is well known for its population of puffins who are usually there for a good part of the summer. There are also shorter trips which leave from the esplanade and take day trippers to see the local wildlife and the seals.
A trip to the south of the town is definitely recommended. The scenery is amazing and there are many small villages to visit including Easdale with its museum, tea room and exciting boat trips.
So, if a visit to Oban is part of your holiday plans, we would be delighted to welcome you into their home. Whether it is a one-night stay as you pass through, or if it is a longer visit so you can enjoy the town and its surroundings, Hawthornbank is an excellent base with a convenient location and the comforts of home.
