Oban and Lorn Online

Business Directory

Oban's Most Comprehensive Online Directory

This website is your complete guide to Oban and the surrounding area - whether you are looking for accommodation, things to do or information on local businesses. All local businesses with websites are eligible to be featured here - we don't charge for listings, which makes this the most extensive and comprehensive local directory for the area. The site has been in existence for seventeen years now, a fact which is reflected favourably in Google searches and appreciated by our regular advertisers.

In normal times we have more up to date local accommodation listings than any other site. These pages plus our comprehensive business directory - with a free entry for every Oban business - make this site the most complete and easy to use online guide to Oban for residents, visitors and expatriates alike. Sadly for now we have shut much of the directory down to discourage unnecessary visitors. See you all on the other side, stay home, stay safe and look after each other!

If you are thinking of travelling to Oban or Argyll - or indeed any remote area - on holiday or for other non-essential purposes, please read and consider the statements below from Fergus Ewing and Visit Scotland

I am furious at the reckless and irresponsible behaviour of some people travelling to the Highland and Islands. This has to stop now. Let me be crystal clear, people should not be travelling to rural and island communities full stop. They are endangering lives. Do not travel.

Panic buying will have a devastating impact on the livelihoods of rural shops and potentially puts unwanted pressure on NHS services in our rural communities.

The Scottish Government’s advice is that essential travel only should be undertaken. We have been in touch with CalMac and industry leaders to discuss what further measures may be required to deal with this issue.

Cabinet Secretary for Rural Economy and Tourism, Fergus Ewing

VisitScotland is supporting the call by the Scottish Government to stop visitors travelling around rural and remote parts of Scotland as we all need to look after the health and welfare of the people living there. We need to protect these communities for the future as they are what make the visitor experience so special. There will be a time when we can welcome visitors back with open arms to enjoy all that is special about beautiful Scotland – but now is a time for essential travel only.

Malcolm Roughead OBE, Chief Executive, VisitScotland


We love our visitors and look forward to seeing you again when the world returns to normal, but in the meantime PLEASE STAY SAFE AND STAY AT HOME
