Oban occupies a setting in the Firth of Lorn. The bay is a near perfect horseshoe, protected by the island of Kerrera, and beyond Kerrera the Isle of Mull. To the north is the long low island of Lismore, and the mountains of Morvern and Ardgour. The area around Oban is rich with attractions for tourists, from the dramatic scenery of the coast and mountains to the fascinating histories of the local castles and ancient religious sites. The Oban Visitor Information Centre, operated by VisitScotland, is located in the Columba Buildings on the North Pier. Oban has a railway station where a number of First ScotRail trains run to and from Glasgow Queen Street daily. The ferry port: it is Caledonian MacBrayne's busiest terminal.
