This one to three hour stroll through "The Wee Bay" takes in cathedrals, a malt whisky distillery, a castle, historic architecture, raised beaches, piers, lighthouses, memorials and more.

Michelle, our Scottish Tourist Guide Association guide, will lead you on a relaxed walk of this beautiful seaside town as she entertains and informs you with stories of Celtic giants, Norse warlords, Stone Age cave dwellers, Victorian entrepreneurs and powerful clans. See famous landmarks, historic lighthouses and spectacular geologic formations- all with a tale to tell!  

We personalise each tour to your interests and fitness level, and can organise visits to some of the landmarks and experiences along the walk or further afield, including Dunollie Museum, Castle and Grounds, Oban Distillery, the Oban War and Peace Museum, McCaig's Tower, Pulpit Hill, Ganavan Beach, Oban Sensory Garden and more. 

The tour is appropriate for most fitness levels- even well behaved pooches on leashes are welcome. We can also arrange afternoon tea overlooking the bay, a stop for treats at a world famous chocolatier or a proper fish supper al fresco!  

Our guide, Michelle, is a Yellow Badge certified STGA tourist guide, and as a travel journalist and archaeologist who has lived and worked here for seven years, she loves sharing Oban's story with people from around the world.
