By train, you’ll go from Edinburgh to Glasgow (less than an hour) and then connect to Oban (roughly 3 hours). I didn’t find any bus connections (not to say there isn’t bus service, I just couldn’t find it). Try http://www.nationale… There are separate tabs for train and coach (bus).

Citylink go from Edinburgh to Oban, some require changing over in Glasgow other’s go direct and take about 3 and 3/4 hours. This year’s summer timetable. It’s also rather cheap so a good option to save on your budget.

There’s plenty of direct connection’s either by train or Bus to Glasgow from Oban so you should have no problem there.
