Oban / mull places to stay and moor rib

After a bit of info that some of you will know !
I am planning a dive trip this July to Oban / mull area and I'm looking for suggestions of places to stay and leave the rib on a mooring !
The plan so far is launch at Dunstaffnage marina, dive in the sound of mull and surrounding area, leave the car and trailer there for the week and stay a night or 2 in different locations along the way.
We will need to get air fills and petrol along the way so any suggestions would be good.
There will be 4 of us on the rib !

We've used Puffin divers a few times 5 mins from Oban Town centre Decent most states slip..Great location (Sound of Keirra) Puts you right in the Mix for some really great Cruising Cori....Mull...Jura...Iona....ect ect good weekly rate for Mooring (Sheltered) Fuel on site but expensive
We're off there again end of May

Agree with max, however there is no fuel, the pump is U/S at the moment. Think it was blown over and they have not got round to sorting it out yet.

Try Lochaline. Lot of divers use there. And not far from Tob where you can get fuel from garage by the marina.
