Matter of opinion mind you but I would highly suggest adding this little town to your itinerary if you're in Scotland. Small seaside town with tons of charm and the distillers of, in my humble opinion, the best whiskey in Scotland. Worth taking the tour and picking up a bottle for the trip home.

My daughter and I did the 1 hour distillery tour today. The guide was excellent (can’t remember his name) and the whole tour was extremely informative. Not being a whisky drinker myself, I nevertheless appreciated the whole experience, even the tasting of the 2 drams at the end of the tour. Highly recommended!

This a great place to visit in Oban. We booked the higher end tour for 75 GBP per person, and it was worth it. We were just 2 couples with a private tour guide. We spent over 2 hours in the distillery learning about what they do and about whiskey in general. Then we moved to the distillery manager's office for a private tasting of multiple whiskeys. They we received a present on the way out and discounts in the shop. The up front price may seem high, but for a full afternoon of fun and learning and sipping and buying, it was really worth it. I'd do it again!

Fantastic 1-hour tour of the original distillery still in use today. Exactly what you’d hope for in a Scotch tour in Scotland. Tour ends with 2 included drams to sample and a nice souvenir glass. A good value.

In particular our grou’s tour guide, Katie, was outstanding - full of great information and enthusiastic while remaining genuine and engaging. She made it great.
