The Old Manse was the perfect place to stay in Oban. Our warm welcome by Simon and his helpful suggestions set the tone for our delightful 2 night stay in Oban. Our first floor picture window had the most beautiful view over Oban, the Isle of Mull and the bay. We could walk wherever we wanted, and leave our car...
