Despite the unpromising exterior, in a basement below a Bed and Breakfast (which it might well actually be part of), this is a very attractive and lively little pub. The interior is dark and wood panelled and there is a small outdoor seating area (not a beer garden, as it’s paved rather than grassy) giving excellent views over Oban Bay and the islands of Kerrera and Mull. Despite the name "Alehouse" on the pub sign, there was only one real ale (Oban Bay Well Puggled) on sale. A wider range of lagers included Fosters, Kronenburg and Amstel. Food is available and under 18s are allowed in if accompanied by an adult. There is also live music after 9.30 most nights. Although slightly away from Oban’s main pub/restaurant/shopping area around the harbour, Markie Dan’s is well worth a visit.

me and my friend Gary stayed here for 5 days in May 2008 and we both enjoyed our stay but only thing to let us down we were planted on top floor, we didnt use the kitchen as everyone just abused the fridge belongings, the pub underneath was a great wee pub but couldnt be further away from town centre which is about 1/2 a mile away, you get great views from the top floor, oban is a great place to holiday and can be hotter than spain, we used the claredon bar on other side of town, all in all a 7 is my score
