The Alexandra Hotel has been built on one of the finest locations in Scotland to take full advantage of the glories of Oban Bay, complete with outstanding views across to the Island of the Inner Hebrides. It is a beautiful Victorian building situated between the lodgings of the Bishop of Argyll & the Isles and the Old Oban Baptist church. The site allows easy access to the town of Oban and a superb walk along the coastal road to Ganavan Beach. Guests can enjoy stunning views of Oban Bay, the island of Kerrera and the surrounding area, and may even spot colourful sunsets, seabirds, and seals in the evenings. The interior of the hotel has been completely renovated while still retaining many of its original features, and the glass frontage allows guests to enjoy the views at any time of the day.
Come and experience an unforgettable stay that you will cherish for a lifetime.

McCaig's Tower, often referred to as McCaig's Folly, is a notable tower on Battery Hill that provides a view of the town of Oban in the Scottish region of Argyll. It has two storeys and 94 lancet arches, and it is made of Bonawe granite that was extracted from quarries on Loch Etive across Airds Bay from Muckairn.
Established in the 18th century, this commercial whisky production offers tours and tastings of the distillery.
Dunollie Museum, Castle and Grounds
On a hilltop north of the town of Oban, in the region of Argyll on Scotland's west coast, is a small, abandoned castle called Dunollie Castle. The location has views of the town, harbour, and nearby isles in addition to views of the island of Kerrera.
Oban War & Peace Museum
A small, by-donation museum featuring a collection of artefacts and memorabilia from local history.
One of Oban's two "must visit" perspectives, Pulpit Hill rises to a height of around 239 feet above the south side of the bay. McCaig's Tower, located over the east side of the bay, is the other. The great views Pulpit Hill offers beyond the island of Kerrera, which is located across Oban Bay, allow one to truly appreciate the intricate interactions between the islands and the mainland surrounding the Firth of Lorn.
