6 Ganavan Sands occupies a prime spot within an exclusive modern development on the golden sands of Ganavan beach, approximately 2 miles from Oban.

Oban is the largest port in the west of Scotland and the main ferry terminus for the Hebrides. Known as ‘The Gateway to the Isles’, there are regular daily ferries to Mull and many of the Inner Hebridean islands, as well as Barra and South Uist in the Western Isles. One of the most outstanding features is McCaig’s Tower, a Colosseum-like building which overlooks Oban Bay.

The town is host to a number of award winning restaurants, specialist local shops, cafés and bars – many hosting live bands and ceilidhs – as well a good selection of supermarkets. Excellent schooling is available locally at nursery, primary and secondary level as is the Lorn & Islands District General Hospital. Swimming and other sports can be enjoyed at the Atlantis Leisure Centre. Ganavan Sands is serviced by frequent buses throughout the day providing ease of access to Oban. There are daily links to Glasgow by air and rail, with road links to Glasgow and Edinburgh via Tyndrum and Crianlarich.

Oban is arguably the centre for the west coast sailing scene, with a beautiful coastline, rich and diverse sea life and excellent shore-side facilities on the doorstep. Dunstaffnage and Oban Marina offer excellent mooring facilities. The local area is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts with numerous walking and cycling routes starting from Ganavan Sands.
