Hi folks – a huge welcome to Oban and to Kathmore Guest House where we offer you genuine home from home bed and breakfast accommodation.
For the past 29 years Keith and I (I'm Morven) have had the privilege of sharing our home with guests from all over the world. We are delighted to welcome new guests to Kathmore along with our annual pilgrims who just keep coming back for more. We love what we do and enjoy meeting and talking with our guests. We are always on hand to advise and guide you on what to do and where to go to help make your stay in Oban a memorable one.
Kathmore is situated on the south side of Oban and a 10 minute gentle walk (no hills!) takes you into the heart of our beautiful town and gives you access to all road, rail and ferry transportation.
Take a relaxing stroll to explore the town and take in the stunning views across Oban Bay to Kerrera Island and beyond to the majestic Isle of Mull and the hills of Morvern. Stop by one of Oban's great restaurants where you can sample seafood at it's very best or enjoy a “wee dram” in one of the many pubs and enjoy Oban's friendly hospitality.
Oban is a superb base from which you can explore and capture the breath taking beauty of the west Highlands and the Inner Hebridean Islands of Mull and Iona. The historical villages of Easdale and Kilmartin or Crinan, quaint and picturesque, are all within easy driving distance. Oban's Sea Life Centre, Inveraray Castle and Old jail or Ben Nevis (Britain's highest mountain) are all close by. If walking is your fancy, why not take the short ferry ride to the peaceful Island of kerrera. Here you can meander your way to the ruins of the 16th century Gylen castle …. a perfect spot for a picnic! There are so many more stunning and beautiful locations, activities and tours just waiting here for you to enjoy.
Relax at the end of your day in our comfortable lounge or sit out on the decking with a glass of wine to enjoy the long summer evenings. We will gladly provide you with drinking glasses, ice and wine coolers.
We will treat you the way we would expect to be treated. Look forward to seeing you here at Kathmore.
