Commenting on the news, John Morrison said, ‘We are delighted we are going back to Oban. We have had some tremendous Mods in Oban with huge attendances enjoyed by everyone. Oban is a natural home for the mod and we look forward to seeing everyone in 2023.’

After the announcement Oban Mod organiser Duncan MacNeil said: ‘2023 will be the 17th time the Mod has been back to the town of its birth. Oban is the perfect venue host town for the Mod.’

Oban's excellent transport connections, abundance of accommodation, restaurants and compact venues will ensure the successful celebration of Gaelic language and culture.
