Oban – Scotch & Scenery by Ann Treacy

We visited Oban, which is South Highlands or maybe the gateway to the Inner Hebrides. I kind of picked the location out of a semi-educated hat and we got lucky. It started with the train ride through Loch Lomond and an absolutely perfect day. It was gorgeous!

Oban is known for seafood and whiskey. There’s an almost Coliseum-looking structure above the town called, McCaig’s Tower. The views are spectacular! Its’ about 100 years old – so not super old but Scottish standards, but very cool. There’s also some castle ruins and lighthouse. The castle seems to be in a forest – it feels a little like Sleeping Beauty land. You could certainly see where the story idea could come from anyways hanging around a place like that.

We did a ton of walking, had a nice meal and a last pint on the way back to the hotel. It’s a small town, very touristy but nice.
