The City of Oban:
On The Map: Oban is located on the west coast of Scotland. It’s protected from the Atlantic by the famous islands of Mull & Iona, which lie just off the coast. Given the amount of ferry traffic from Oban to the various surrounding islands, it’s often referred to as ‘The Gateway to The Isles’.
Your first view of Oban is one you are unlikely to forget. From the north, you glimpse this bustling port from the top of the ‘Bealach-an-Righ’. As you sweep down the hill towards the expanse of the bay, the view opens up before you and one begins to appreciate why Oban has developed into Scotland’s most popular west-coast holiday town. Oban ‘The Seafood Capital of Scotland was a late starter, existing only as a small fishing and trading village until the steamers of the early Victorian era started arriving in the early 1800s. The town lies in a crescent that occupies the hills surrounding Oban Bay, which is protected from all but the most severe of weather by the northern tail of the island of Kerrera. Oban’s most outstanding feature is McCaig’s Tower, more usually and descriptively called McCaig’s Folly. This is the Colosseum lookalike that stands above the town and features in many of the postcards you will find for sale in the shops on George Street. Other notable attractions include the Waterfront Centre, the Cathedral of St Columba, the Oban Distillery & Dunollie Castle.
