This is the first time that the Small Craft Group has arranged a joint visit with the Scottish Branch for members and their guests. As well as being of interest to Scottish Branch members, it is hoped that other RIN members will also take the opportunity to participate in this historic visit.

Oban is around a three hour journey by car, coach or train from Glasgow or Edinburgh and less than 2 hours from Stirling. If travelling by train, the journey takes you along the world-famous West Highland Line. ScotRail runs trains six times a day from Glasgow Queen Street Station to Oban. If you are travelling by coach you can visit the Citylink website. Glasgow is the nearest large airport to Oban and is approximately 90 miles away. There are good links from the airport to the train and bus terminals in the city. Other options include the Caledonian Sleeper service from London Euston.

A programme for the visit is currently being put together but it is anticipated that this will include not only a tour of the depot but also a couple of talks and, service commitments permitting, a tour of one of the two NLB Buoy tenders stationed at Oban. One of the talks will be given by Paul Jennings, Oban's Harbour Manager.

There is no charge for this visit. However, prior registration is required. Members may bring guests. Members will be notified when the online booking facility through the website is open.

Further information about the visit will be published on the website when it becomes available.
