Oban Tourist Information Tel:01631 563122
The largest resort on the north-west coast, Oban offers an exciting mix of history and culture. The town is overlooked by McCaig’s Tower, a striking unfinished replica of Rome’s Colosseum which dates from the Victorian period, as do many of the town’s buildings. The busy harbour is a constant source of interest and the views from here have inspired poets, authors and artists for centuries.
Isle of Skye
is one of the most popular destinations for visitors to this region and with good reason; Portree, the capital town has pretty pastel cottages lining its natural harbour, whilst the northern Trotternish Peninsula is dotted with fascinating geological wonders such as Quirang and Old Man of Storr.
Isle of Mull
is blessed with a landscape of wild beauty, despite being just a few miles from the Scottish mainland. Its highest mountain, Ben More, rises to over 3000 feet and is surrounded by smaller, but just as spectacular hills. The coastline is made up of many inlets and sandy bays looking out to the smaller islands to the west. The area is steeped in history, from the early Christian settlement to the 1745 Jacobite rebellion led by ‘Bonnie Prince Charlie’. Craignure, the main ferryport, has several attractions close by, including Toronsay Castle with 12 acres of landscaped gardens which can be reached via a Narrow Gauge Railway from Craignure. Mull’s largest resort, Tobermory, lies to the north of the island. Its crescent of brightly coloured houses sweeping around the harbour gives it an air more reminiscent to the Mediterranean than the island’s capital.
