During February 2016 the Caledonian Sleeper train between London and Oban will stop at Oban instead of Fort William.
Engineering works will prevent the train from travelling to Fort William which is the last stop on the West Highland Line and service operators Serco will provide bus transport for travellers who want to get from Oban to Fort William.
This is potentially exciting news as one of the reasons to stop at Oban is for Serco to gather feedback from train passengers and businesses in the Oban area on the viability of possibly making this a permanent route.
It’s well known that Oban is a magnet for tourists visiting the town as well as a staging point to the Isles so another travel option for those wanting to travel to Oban is exciting news indeed.
The Sleeper will stop at Oban on the weekends of 12-14, 19-21 and 26-28 February 2016.
