Your visit isn’t complete without a tour of the Oban War & Peace Museum, where a captivating collection of artefacts and photographs depicts the rich heritage of this busy port town.
Particularly striking are the displays that tell the story of Oban as a strategic location in World War II, when Australian, Canadian and United States aircrew and RAF Flying Boats were based in the bay. The museum, located in the historic Oban Times Building, is run entirely by volunteers, a group of veterans who call themselves “The Watchers”, and is open seven days a week. Admission is free but donations are gratefully accepted.
Visit the Oban War & Peace Museum with an STGA certified guide on an Oban Walking Tour. From the cathedrals to the piers, and from the Scottish Chocolate Trail to the West Coast Whisky Trail, you will se Oban's highlights. Get in touch today to book your Oban Walking Tour with our guide Michelle!
