Oban Comic Con
BGCP returns to Oban for the second year, expect traders, cosplay, workshops, character meet and greets, guests, gaming, props and much more
BGCP Comic Con was started as The Big Glasgow Comic Page back in July 2012 mostly out of boredom and trying to find more Comic Fans to speak to, The Facebook Page gathered likes extremely fast as there wasn’t anything like it at the time and eventually this led to a Comic Book Group, Pub Quizzes, Tournaments and eventually a Comic Book Market.
We organized BGCP Comic Markets for several years until we had outgrown the smaller venues in Glasgow City Centre so set out to run Comic Cons in and out of Glasgow and further over Scotland including East Kilbride, Rutherglen, Loch Lomond, Dunoon, Aberdeen and countless more towns and cities.

Its name derives from the Gaelic language and means ‘little bay’, but when it comes to having an unforgettable weekend break, Oban is definitely a place which is big on things to see and do. Nestled on the west coast and surrounded by miles of dramatic shores and beautiful countryside, the seaside town is a great place for a holiday. Why not take a day trip to one of the surrounding islands? You could pack three into one day and take a tour of Mull, Iona and Staffa. Or visit Kerrera, the closest island to Oban, and enjoy a pleasant stroll along the island’s track roads and explore the ruins of Gylen Castle, one-time stronghold of the MacDougalls of Lorne.
Split into North and South, Oban makes a brilliant touring base. Outwith the town you could spend days exploring castles, gardens, villages, beaches, forests, and fun and unusual attractions, from the power station hollowed into a mountain to boat trips where you can spot basking sharks and a host of other sea life. Oban itself is compact and it’s easy to get round on foot. There are plenty of small galleries and independent stores to browse through, as well as the centrally-located local distillery, chocolate shop, and museum. Wander along the seafront to the ruined Dunollie Castle and the sandy beaches beyond – the sunsets here are phenomenal. When it’s time to relax or refuel, take your pick from the town’s offering of pubs, cafés and restaurants.
