Oban is a destination blessed with adventure around every corner, and whilst exploring the west coast, we’d recommend a car journey across to Lismore.

Loch Awe

Another beautiful destination within an hour’s drive from Oban is Loch Awe. You may have driven past this Loch on your way to us but doubling back on your staycation is worth the trip. If you enjoy a long hike, fresh air and beautiful landscapes, Loch Awe is the place to explore. With miles of land to cover, Loch Awe is the longest freshwater loch in Scotland, stretching 41km end to end. As you wander along the shores of the loch, depending on the time of year, you may see local fishermen catching their trout and salmon, plus several castle ruins awaiting to be explored, including everyone’s favourite Kilchurn Castle. If you forgot to charge your car prior to your Loch Awe adventure, there are several EV charging points in and around the area you can hook up to before heading back to our boutique hotel. These include EV charging stations in Dalmally and Inveraray. Just pop your location into Google and search for the closest EV point.

A must-see attraction when visiting Inveraray is Inveraray Castle, an iconic Scottish castle. Home to the Duke of Argyll, Chief of the Campbell Clan, Inveraray Castle is a stunning landmark rich in culture and history. Explore the exquisite interior decor before wandering through the immaculate gardens which surround the castle. Since you’re in town, why not visit the Inveraray Jail and take a step back in time to a wicked 19th Century prison. Experience the lives of men, women and children who were tried and locked up in Inveraray Jail. Discover the cells, the grounds, the jails architecture and come face-to-face with costumed characters who will re-enact life in Inveraray Jail. Or if you’d rather stretch your legs by the loch, there are plenty of trails in and around Loch Fyne which make for an atmospheric hike or wander. The choice is yours. Once you’ve explored the town of Inveraray, check your car battery before heading back to our Oban hotel.
