Are you looking for somewhere to have breakfast in Oban?

We have compiled a list of six places that locals rave about.

And of course, we are always keen to hear more from our readers about their favourite places to eat and drink.

With the rise in the number of AirBnBs in town, and now that some hotels charge an extra cost for breakfast, more and more people are looking to find the best place for a breakfast treat.

Here are six great places, as recommended by folks who live in the town.

The View Oban

With magic for your eyes as the ferries go in and out of the pier, and the added treat of an al fresco, breakfast served up at The View is up there with some of the best you can find.

Staff serve up a full Scottish breakfast with tattie scones and beans on the side.

For an extra treat try their bacon roll followed by the Best Bloody Mary in town.

The problem with breakfast in The View is that you may not want to leave before sunset to capture on camera the golden, hazy sunlight at the end of each day, weather permitting.

£9.95 for The View full breakfast, £8.95 for the veggie breakfast, breakfast rolls from £2.95, eggs benedict £6.75.

Don’t miss the Scotch pancakes with maple syrup for £5.75, or an extra £1.50 with bacon.

Open 7.30am until 10.30am Thursday to Sunday.

Address: 34 George St, PA34 5NL

CalMac MV Isle of Mull

Anyone who has had a CalMac breakfast served on the MV Isle of Mull will know that not only is it the best value breakfast on the market, it is also the easiest choice for the pickiest of customers.

It is a breakfast of champions, merely because you got a space on the increasingly popular route.

Customers get to pick six or eight items from a choice of sausage, potato scone, Lorne sausage, bacon, Stornoway black pudding, eggs, potato rostis and grilled tomatoes. Vegetarian options are available.

But be quick – get into the queue for food as soon as you get on board, as they can sell out. The closer your ferry to lunchtime, the fewer items that will be left.

And to eat it, stay in the dining area – but bag a seat by one of the many windows and watch Lismore, and Duart Castle sail by.

From the breakfast hot dog, bacon rolls and crispy chicken sandwiches, the breakfast offerings come as part of a meal deal for under £5, or a little bit more if you want a slushie (just the thing to wake up a sleepyhead).

Plenty in store but it has to be eaten off the premises – so watch out for the seagulls.

They know what you are eating and they want it more than you, so hold on tight.

Meal deal from £3.50. The shop is open 7am until 10pm Monday to Saturday, and from 8am on Sundays.
