With its dramatic hills, sandy beaches, castles and distilleries, the area is visited by many tourists every year.

Oban

Oban

Known as the “Gateway to the Isles”, Oban on the North West Coast of Scotland has been a popular visitor destination since Victorian times, due to its sweeping bay, pretty harbour, and amazing scenic views.

Oban and neighbouring Lorn have a long and interesting history which began in the Dark Ages with kings and chiefs building castles and forts along the coast. In 500AD a powerful Irish Lord named Loairn established his Kingdom just outside Oban at Dunollie and gave his name to the district.

The Jacobite Steam Train - West Coast Railways

One train ride you don’t want to miss 
The 84-mile return trip on the Jacobite Steam Train departs from Fort William, a town set in the shadow of Ben Nevis – and follows a scenic and memorable route to the busy fishing village of Mallaig (just in time for a fish and chip lunch!). The famous tour won Wanderlust Magazine’s poll for Top Rail Journey in The World 2009 – 2013 and is an unmissable experience for the whole family! 

What a journey! 
It begins in the largest town in the Scottish Highlands (Fort William), a place that will wow you with its dramatic scenery – its destination, Mallaig: a hive of activity and gateway to beautiful Skye and the Small Isles (via ferry). Shops, bars, restaurants, places to walk - and fish and chips with a view! On the way there, you’ll have the pleasure of passing: 
  • Arisaig Station - Britain's most westerly mainland railway station  
  • Loch Morar - the deepest freshwater loch in Britain 
  • River Morar - the shortest river in Britain 
  • Loch Nevis - the deepest seawater loch in Europe 
  • The village of Glenfinnan & the Glenfinnan viaduct – you’ll cross the 21-arched viaduct, which overlooks the magnificent Loch Shiel and the Jacobite monument. This is particularly exciting if you’re a Harry Potter fan – the Hogwarts Express passes over this very viaduct on its way to Hogwarts!). 
  • The village of Lochailort – a hamlet with one of the most rugged landscapes in the Scottish Highlands. 
  • Arisaig Village - on the sheltered shore of Loch nan Ceall. On a clear summer's day, you can see the ‘Small Isles’ of Rum, Eigg, Muck, Canna and the southern tip of Skye from this tranquil village on the shore of Loch nan Ceall. 
  • Morar Village - and its silver sandy beaches

A traditional Scottish welcome!
The Caledonian Claymore Hotel was designed and built in the 19
th century. The beautiful manor house has 86 rooms, many of which look out onto the grounds surrounding the historic property – lush gardens overlooking Loch Long with a backdrop of mountains (you might even spot some deer). The traditionally furnished and cosy hotel joined the Caledonian family in August 2023, as did their General Manager Gary and his excellent team of staff, so guests can look forward to continued exceptional service.

A hotel with an enviable location
The hotel has an enviable location! Based at the foot of the ‘Arrochar Alps’ on the shores of the tidal sea water Loch Long – it's only a few miles from Loch Lomond (the largest lake in the UK).
