About Dawsons Estate & Letting Agents in Oban, Argyll
Dawsons has been providing property marketing and letting management services throughout the West Highlands since the business was established in 1974 and we are proud be the longest established independent estate agency in Argyll. Our Oban Office, with an extensive illuminated window display, is situated in a prime position at Number 1 George Street, the main thoroughfare through the town.
Dawsons is one of only two Scottish member firms of the Mayfair Office, which assists us by providing a source of national property marketing expertise while forming the hub of an international network of the finest estate agency firms in the industry. They can also gain valuable publicity for our clients’ properties through their close links with property editors and feature writers for leading publications including Coast magazine, The Week, Sunday Times and Country Life, to name a few.
Our firm successfully adopts a traditional marketing approach with over 40 years of expertise, complemented by our bespoke websites and membership of the premium property search platforms, Rightmove, Zoopla, Prime Location and Mayfair Office, in which all our clients’ properties are listed under the Dawsons banner. We are also members of The Property Ombudsman and the Scottish Lettings Register and are proud to rigorously maintain the highest standards set by the industry. Dawsons jealously values its independence from corporate or solicitor ownership and as such avoids the inevitable conflicts of interest that can arise from such associations, for example, acting for both parties in a transaction. Similarly, we do not offer financial services. Dawsons Estate Agents quite simply specialises in property sales and residential lettings and offers a professional and personal service to our clients.
Dawsons covers a far reaching area encompassing too many villages, islands and settlements to ever try to give them all a mention! So below is a brief description of the main towns that we cover from our central location in the town of Oban, travelling north to Fort William and south to Inveraray. If you would like to discuss any parts of Argyll and Lochaber with us please do not hesitate to call or email and we will be delighted to help……………..
Oban, the principal town of Argyll and the unofficial capital of the West Highlands sits in a sheltered spot on the Firth of Lorne protected by the Island of Kerrera with McCaigs Tower as a backdrop. Caledonian MacBrayne Ferries serve many of the Hebdridean Islands from the bustling harbour and the town enjoys good transport links to the central belt of Scotland by road and rail with the airport at North Connel serving private and light charter aircraft.

Fort William, the principal town of Lochaber and the outdoor capital of the UK, sits on the shores of Loch Linnhe and at the foot of Ben Nevis. The flourishing and expanding town supports a wide range of independent shops and national retailers, restaurants, leisure and recreational facilities and professional services, with good transport links to the south by rail, including a ‘sleeper service’ to London. By road, Inverness and the cities of the central belt are within comfortable driving distance. The surrounding area is of great natural scenic beauty, with dramatic mountainous backdrops and is renowned for excellent outdoor sporting and leisure opportunities including shooting, fishing, mountaineering and skiing.
Inveraray, a picturesque small town, is delightfully situated on the western shores of Loch Fyne. The area is one of great natural beauty and is steeped in history with the town having many fine period buildings including Inveraray Castle, the ancestral seat of the Duke of Argyll, and the renowned Inveraray Jail.
