How to get there

Oban is unique in the Highlands as it is relatively easy to reach by public transport. The railway stations has a direct service to Glasgow (along the picturesque West Highland Line) all year and a summer service to Edinburgh. By road both Glasgow and Edinburgh are less than 3 hours drive with stunning scenery along the route which takes in Loch Lomond. You can also fly up from Glasgow by seaplane in 20 minutes or use the local Oban Airport. Good bus and coach links exist to the capital and to most key towns in the central belt. There is also easy access for Fort William and (again in the summer only) connections onward to Inverness. Car hire is easy and budget airllines operate to Prestwick and Glasgow International.
