The Argyll and Bute region
Oban in the West Highlands of Scotland has been known for years as the 'Gateway to the Isles'. It certainly boasts a busy harbour with ferries serving the Inner and Outer Hebridean islands and the town is famous too for its malt whisky distillery which sits beneath another famous landmark - McCaig's Tower (modelled on the Collisseum in Rome) - worth the steep climb to enjoy the fantastic west coast sunsets from its stone arched windows. The seas off Oban provide world class sailing, kayaking and scuba diving and there are plenty of marine trips and activities for visitors. Although part of the Highlands, Oban is close enough to the central belt to be easily accessible and its reputation as one of the most popular visitor destinations in Scotland was first gained in the days of Queen Victoria! Today, it is a vibrant seaside town boasting fantastic restaurants (often specialising in seafood and shellfish), stunning scenery and friendly locals.
If you have kids a trip to the Sealife Centre at nearby Barcaldine is a great day out. Children also like getting on the water and Calmac offer a variety of day cruises from their ferry hub in Oban. There are also marine wildlife trips to see dolphins, basking sharks and whales and you can fish anywhere on the seashore (no permit necessary) and catch something for your tea. The rivers are teaming with salmon and trout and there is plenty of wildlife on shore to observe - from red deer to pinemartens. McCaig's Tower and Pulpit Hill in Oban offer spectacular views out over Oban Bay and beyond to the island of Kerrera, Mull and Iona. A trip to any of these islands is a must on any holiday. Iona is the 'cradle of Christianity' and the abbey is a magical place to visit. Staffa inspired Mendellsohn's great Hebridean Overture and artists across the centuries have drawn inspiration from the stunning scenery that is all around.

"OK cottage, but not fabulous."
Functional cottage for exploring Oban. Kitchen was decent, and living room was OK. The bedrooms and bathrooms were quite dirty, and in general it needed some maintenance and a good scrub. However, we were there at the end of the tourist season, so could be better earlier in the season. The restaurant was great, we had a really nice evening there. The overall setting was quite pretty, and it could be great if it was cleaned up a bit.
Hi Carol - sorry you had some issues with the wear and tear in the lodge after a busy holiday season. We are only 3 star and don't pretend to be 'fabulous' - we aim to offer a good value for money, comfortable and homely base for a family holiday in Oban. We do all our maintenance in the winter ready for next Spring, but with 22 properties it takes a while to get around them all. I am glad you enjoyed your meal in the Barn Bar - it is a great facility for Cologin residents.

"A great place to stay"
About 12 chalets on a mature site, all well spaced so not on top of each other, and all with a parking space adjacent. Our's appeared to have been recently refurbished to a high standard and was very comfortable for a fortnight stay. The Barn Restaurant serves a wide choice of really good food (can recommend the Mussels!) and is a popular, friendly place - the live music from local muscians on Sunday PM's is particularly good.
Just 3miles from centre of Oban (free parking near Tesco's) which has excellent ferry services to nearby islands - we can recommend the day trip to Iona, book-able at the terminal.
A good centre for touring around, but be prepared to drive long distances because Scotland is a big place. The local scenery is spendid and the site itself nestles in its own pretty little glen. All in all, a very good place to stay.

This was our 6th time at cologin and I only wish I had written a review sooner,what can I say?I love the place,it's so peaceful,we stayed in chalet 18 this time,it was superb,everything you need for a weekend stay or a full week is there,and there's an onsite pub that serves food,and it's really good food,and that's coming from a fussy city chef,I could not recommend the place more,if you want away from the city for a few days or a week it's so quiet and relaxing,you just get left alone to do whatever you want,go for long country walks,go to the pub,sit at the table outside your chalet or just sit and watch tv,or go fishing,,and it's just 5mins from Oban,I can't wait to go back.thanks
