What Scotland may lack in tanning opportunities, it makes up in beautiful coastlines.
And with its stunning sunsets, romantic history and fantastic wildlife, few are as beautiful as the West Coast.
See it all with today’s Big Deal on a one or two night stay at the Muthu Alexandra Hotel.
Just over two hours from Glasgow by car and conveniently situated on the world famous West Highland Line for guests arriving by rail, Oban is an easy destination for a short break.
Nestled between the lodgings of the Bishop of Argyll and the Isles and the Old Oban Baptist church, The Alexandra Hotel is on the Corran esplanade, a short stroll from Oban’s bustling centre.
Beautiful panoramas of the isles
The views across Oban Bay to the island of Kerrera and beyond are amazing and, along with colourful sunsets, seabirds of all kinds and seals can be spotted most evenings.
Benefitting from extensive and peaceful lounges looking to the West, the Alexandra Hotel is perfectly located to make the most of the views.

Available seven days a week, option one is for two people to have an overnight stay in a twin or double room at Muthu Alexandra Hotel.

These extracts were taken from recent, longer reviews of Muthu Alexandra Hotel on TripAdvisor:
‘Nice hotel by the sea. This hotel is located just by the sea and a nice walk only a few minutes from the centre of Oban… Clean and tidy, quiet and quite traditional. The service was good with a nice variety at the continental breakfast and a generous menu for those who want warm dishes. Friendly service, large parking free of charge. We would love to come back.’
‘The staff were very helpful and accommodating. The majority of their clientele are of the mature bracket which is fine if you are looking for that quiet, non-action packed stay but otherwise a very pleasant stay. Entertainment is provided in the hotel’s bar every night and they serve a mean brekkie.’
West Coast getaway
With validity until the 22nd of December, this Big Deal is perfect for a late summer into autumn getaway.
Oban is known as the Gateway to the Isles and is also the ideal base from which to explore Glencoe, Inveraray and the silver sands of Mallaig.
