Autumn on the West Coast

8th September 2023

Yes, we know Oban and its surrounding areas are pretty spectacular in the summer months, but don’t be fooled, the autumn months are just as impressive. With stunning local walks like Sutherlands Grove, Glen Nant Oakwoods and Feochan Forest. Local castles to explore from Dunollie Castle, Dunstaffnage Castle and Kilchurn Castle. Unique Islands like Easdale, Luing and Kerrera. There is so much to see in the ever-changing season, allowing you to see our area in a different light.

Autumn is kicked off with the Argyll Food Festival held at the Corran Halls on the 23rd and 24th September, a weekend of family fun, food, drink, and entertainment. Entry is just £3.00, under 16s free when accompanied by an adult. Corran Halls have many more events throughout October, link is below for you to explore:
