Our town guides are all fully trained and insured - and they are local so you'll learn about their lives here and not just the history and heritage of the area. Find out about the Victorian entrepreneurs who developed the town from its Mesolithic origins. Hear tales of giants, maidens, Clan chieftains and warriors and of RAF officers and crew in World War II. We can vary the route depending on the weather and your inclination to climb stairs or steep hills! We can tailor our tour to take a different route or to end your tour at Oban distillery or Dunollie Castle. The tour 'stops' include far more than highlighted - we pass by many interesting buildings and businesses and we'll spend some time in both Oban Cathedrals - St John the Divine Episcopal Cathedral and St Columba's Roman Catholic Cathedral. And you'll learn about Oban's third Cathedral of Trees. We hope you will join us on this fun, informative and friendly walking tour of Oban.
