Oban - Its name derives from the Gaelic language and means 'little bay', but when it comes to having an unforgettable weekend break, Oban is definitely a place which is big on things to see and do. Nestled on the west coast and surrounded by miles of dramatic shores and beautiful countryside, the seaside town is a great place for a holiday. Why not take a day trip to one of the surrounding islands? You could pack three into one day and take a tour of Mull, Iona and Staffa. Or visit Kerrera, the closest island to Oban, and enjoy a pleasant stroll along the island's track roads and explore the ruins of Gylen Castle, one-time stronghold of the MacDougalls of Lorne.
