Directions to Oban by car

From Glasgow

Follow signs for Glasgow Airport and head westbound past the airport on the M8 towards Greenock. Take the slip road at Junction 30, following signs for the M898 Erskine Bridge.

Having crossed the bridge, take the A82 towards Dumbarton and continue for Balloch, still remaining on the A82. Follow the A82 north until Tarbet, with the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond on your right!

At Tarbet, turn right (signed for A82 Crianlarich), and at Crianlarich, turn left and head for Tyndrum (a convenient place to take a rest, have something to eat or fill up the car with petrol.) Heading north out of Tyndrum, take the road to the left (signed for A85 Oban).

From here, it's a straight run into Oban, passing through Dalmally, Lochawe, Taynuilt and Connel.

Alternatively carry straight on at Tarbet, via the town of Inveraray on the A816 and re-join the A85 at Dalmally - slightly longer but arguably an easier drive.

Your journey time should be comfortably within 2 hours 30 minutes.

Leave Edinburgh, heading for the M9 towards Stirling. Bypass Stirling, still remaining on the M9. Near Stirling, take junction 10 of the M9, following signs for the A84 to Callendar and Crianlarich.
