Winter in Oban

17th October 2022



With all the colourful leaves falling fast and the night’s drawing in, only means one thing... Winter is approaching, and summer has come to an end! But don’t let that stop you from visiting bonnie wee Oban in the winter, it’s much more fun to wrap up warm and enjoy everything that the colder months have to offer.

As most of the UK begins to hole up for the chillier months, the town’s crisp, fresh air tempts visitors outdoors to experience the Scottish Highlands in a different light. 

18th – 27th November we have our annual Winter festival here in Oban, from whiskey tasting to festival markets and family favourites like the Reindeer Parade and Christmas light switch on. this nine-day festival of events is sure to leave you with a warm glow, so grab your hat, scarf and gloves and make a date with the Oban Winter Festival.

Discover the great local shops for your Christmas presents, or head over to the bars for that much needed pint and finish at the restaurants that give you joy in your belly.

Festival action takes place in and around town and getting from place to place is very easy, making our apartments in town the perfect stay for your holiday.
