Oban, Lorn and the Isles

Oban / An t-Òban

Oban is a picturesque town which thrives on its tourist and fishing industries. It is well known for its varied attractions including McCaigs Tower and its panoramic views.

The registration office in Oban is situated in Albany Street, which is easily found in the centre of the town.

Oban and the surrounding area is known as “the gateway to the Highlands and Islands”, a perfect place to celebrate your wedding.  There are many exciting and picturesque venues both in Oban and the surrounding area which are available for your ceremony:  Registration Staff look forward to helping you plan your special day. 


Mull / Muile

Tobermory has become one of the most popular wedding destinations on the west coast of Scotland because of its superb scenery and the romantic backdrop of its coloured houses on the waterfront together with the abundance of wildlife which can be found throughout.

The Ceremony Room is situated within the area office buildings in Tobermory, on Breadalbane Street.  The Ceremony Room has recently been refurbished and upgraded, using what was originally the old magistrate’s courtroom still with the original bench in situ. Above the bench is a reproduction, made by a young local artist of the “Burgh Coat of Arms” which was used up to 1975. We also have examples of work from other local artists.   The new facility can comfortably accommodate up to 45 people and has a stunning panoramic view over Tobermory Bay, Sound of Mull with the hills of Morvern and Ardnamurchan in the background.

As with all Council Ceremony Rooms, the aim is to help make your day a very special occasion.  You can play music of your choice on the mini music system (either tapes or CD) and you are welcome to add a small poem or a little bit to the service as long as the Registrar approves.  There is a digital camera and facilities to send a snapshot if you give the Registrar an email address.  In addition there is another room available, if you let the Registrar know in advance, for anyone who might need to change before the ceremony.  Toilet facilities are provided

The staff have extensive local knowledge and can help with phone numbers for accommodation, tourist information, photographers, florists, hairdressers, Scottish pipers and they can on occasion, act as witnesses.  

Tiree / Tiriodh

Tiree is the most westerly point of Argyll and Bute Council.  This small island is renowned for its glorious beaches and friendly locals.

The Registration Office on Tiree is situated in Crossapol.  The Ceremony Room is intimate, a feature that has been very popular with couples who prefer the tranquillity of this island as a backdrop to their special day.
