Oban recommendations

We have 3 days up in the Oban area in a fortnight. We're staying near the Creagan Inn and will probably launch from Linnhe Marine. Looking for nice places to/trips to do, preferably with a nice pub/place to eat at the other end. We probably have a daily range of about 85-90 nautical in decent weather.

What should we be doing?

Just about to many to mention but here goes a few. Pier house, Lismore, Loch Gairloch good food, Loch Aline best burger afloat at the hut, Tobermory, Loch Sunart stop at salen walk to hotel, Oban itself, easdale of course.
Well theres a few for you to research all of them I could recommend.
Have a good time pity your not up for ERR but maybe next year when it goes back to May weekend.

I'd definitely put Tobermory down as a 'must do'.

Another suggestion would be to take a blast down to the Corryvrecken then over to Crinnan for some pub grub.

Where would you land at Oban? Use the marina and get the ferry across? or is there somewhere to land on the mainland?

Depends on how brave you are, there is a shingle beach right in the middle of town, a nice little ramp up to the main street and that puts you right outside the cracking little pup/restaurant Cuan Mor.
