About Oban North Pier

The 1861 census shows us that before the coming of the railway in the 1890s, Oban was a small fishing village with a population of just 600.

Oban has four piers: North pier, South Pier, Railway pier and Lighthouse pier. The Council-owned North Pier is used by the Waverley and other cruise vessels. It is also used as a lay-by berth by Caledonian MacBrayne.

Information on boat moorings in Oban Bay is available here.
