What you should know…

  • One of the bedrooms is located on the ground floor and so this may be bestter suited to grandparents looking for a bit of peace and quiet from the rest of the group rather than small children!
  • While amenities and attractions are reachable on foot and by ferry, we recommend having access to a car in order to fully explore the surrounding area

Blythswood House is located just a 5-minute walk from the centre of Oban and a wide variety of restaurants, pubs and shops. Oban with its busy port is known as “The Gateway to the Isles”, from here (and depending on season) guests can visit a number of popular nearby islands including; Kerrera, Lismore, Mull, Iona and Staffa.

For keen whisky drinkers, the Oban Distillery is one of Scotland’s oldest sources of Single Malt Scotch Whisky and one of the smallest scotch distilleries and is therefore a must visit while you are in Oban. For children, the local leisure centre is less than a 5-minute walk from the house and with its swimming pool and soft play area it makes a fantastic place to occupy the children should you have any rain! On a sunny day, the whole family will enjoy a walk up to McCaig’s Tower where beautiful views over Oban and beyond can be enjoyed. The closest airport to Blythswood House is Glasgow which is just over two hours from the house.
