Directions - When entering Oban from Fort William or Glasgow by car (A85), you will come down a steep hill towards the bay. Turn left immediately after the Kings Knoll Hotel (signposted to the swimming pool), and at the next junction go as near as possible straight across, into Dalriach Road. Pass the new "Atlantis Leisure" swimming pool/sports centre on your left, and we are just beyond, on the right.

If arriving from Lochgilphead or Campbeltown (A816), drive right through Oban and follow signs for Crianlarich A85 (A82). As you climb up the hill out of Oban (after the two small roundabouts), take the first turning on the right, just before the Kings Knoll Hotel, and then proceed as above.
