If you are arriving on public transport, we are about a 10-15 minute walk (depending on how heavy your luggage is!) from the arrival point for the bus, train or ferry. You could catch a taxi for approx �3-4 if your bags are really heavy. If you're walking, go straight up the main street of town, with the ocean on your left. Walk up the same side of the road as New Look clothing, Boots the chemist, and SpecSavers optical store. Once you go past the Phoenix Cinema, you're nearly there. As you're walking past the Taj Mahal Indian restaurant, we're the big church building on the corner; you'll see our blue-and-yellow sign that says Backpackers Plus. Come straight to the top of the stairs to check in!
If you're arriving by car from the north on the A85, you'll arrive in town coming down a winding hill. Turn left at the Kings Knoll hotel, down a little street called Deanery Brae. It turns into Breadalbane Street, and we're the big church building up the end of the road on the right; you'll see our blue-and-yellow sign that says Backpackers Plus.
If you're arriving by car from the south on the A816, follow the road through town, all the way along the waterfront with the ocean on your left. You'll get to a roundabout with the Corran Halls straight ahead and a green on the right in front of some guest houses. Turn right at this roundabout; as if you're leaving town again headed for Fort William. Go over the second roundabout then take the first right at the Kings Knoll hotel. Follow the road right onto Breadalbane Street, and we're up the end on the right. You'll see our blue-and-yellow sign that says Backpackers Plus.

Located Near

Our location is right in the centre of town, a stone's throw from the waterfront and minutes from the best pubs, shops and restaurants. Stunning views of the mountains and islands are a short walk from our front door.
Come and enjoy all that Oban has to offer; castles, ceilidhs, distilleries, fishing, hiking, biking, lochs, mountains, islands, boating, friendly pubs, fresh seafood... and so much more!

Undoubtedly one of the prettiest and most other-worldly sights you're going to see on this planet, this natural phenom is caused by the collision of electrically charged particles from the sun. To us, it's an eerie sheet of coloured light, like a big rave in the sky. And here are the top spots to watch it!
