So what can you do when you are here?

It all depends on your tastes.

If you’re a fan of nature then take a trip with one of the local boat tours.

Just down the road in Clachan Seil  Sealife Adventures will take you on a voyage of discovery  aboard the Porpoise II.

Or you might want to feel the spray on your face on one of Seafari’s fast RIBs. They can be found in Ellenabeich.

Either way you’ll have a fantastic trip and stand a good chance of spotting seals, seabirds and perhaps dolphins and whales as well as getting a different view of our beautiful coastline. And if the tide is right,  the swirling waters of the Corryvrecken.

For a self propelled adventure contact Sea Kayak Scotland also based Seil.

We have sea access from our own slipway – tides permitting.

If you like to find out about the history of the area then our excellent local museum The Slate islands Heritage Centre should be your first port of call.

There’s more to discover at Easdale museum and at The Atlantic Islands Centre on Luing.

In Oban you’ll find the War and Peace Museum   and Dunolllie Castle

And to find out how your dram is made (and get to taste some) visit Oban distillery

Our mild (and damp) climate means gardens in Argyll are particularly beautiful. Here on Seil we have An Cala in Ellenabeich as well as Ardmaddy Castle Gardens close by on the mainland and NTS Arduaine a little further down the coast at Kilmelford.

Or perhaps you’d just like to explore on foot? We have maps and can advise on routes.

To find out about the wider area pop into the Tourist Information Centre (iCentre)  near the north pier in Oban or check out Oban and Lorn Tourism Alliance.

You won’t want to leave.
