Puffin Divers just down Kerrera Sound from Oban has good facilities. Slipway, and moorings- which are free to divers along with diesel and petrol refuelling.

This has good access to some of the best cruising areas in the UK

http://www.puffin.org.uk/

They also have on-site bungalows that a very good - sleep up to 7 for £75 per night. Book early if you want therse though as they are very popular.
( they call them waterfront accomodation on the website)

Bogi, Puffin get the thumbs up. Very professional setup, good slip with car parking for trailers etc. Camp site 100 yards along the road if you can't book into the Puffin Centre. Puffin is 2km south of Oban. The town itself has lots of hotels and B&Bs.

Bogi, this is an 11m Redbay sat on the slip at Puffin divers. Trailer park on the grass in the back ground.

Keeping my boat in Oban at the moment. Dunstaffanage Marina people superb and very helpfull. Petrol station 200 yds along the road and nice people there too. Great slip and lots to see and do from there. Suggest a trip up to the head of Loch Etive - about 20 miles after negotiating the Connel rapids underneathe the bridge. Some of the best scenery in Scotland into the back end of Glencoe. The Glue Pot pub great also.
