Oban is our nearest town and only about 12-15 minutes in the car north of us. The drive into Oban is always beautiful, as 4 of the eight miles is in passing Loch Feochan, the rest driving over the hills. I have tried to include some of my favourite pictures of the town.
Just a view along the route from home to Oban. Even in winter there is so much colour.
Just wayside flowers on the road in July.
The Esplanade/George Street Oban. This clearly shows McCaig's Tower. This was built in the early 1900's as a folly. A wealthy business man was concerned by the amount of unemployment in the 1920's so employed a lot of people to build this. Originally it was suppose to have a roof. However, it contains a little garden inside but it's main attraction being the splendid views from up there. I've included some below. It is certainly a land mark.
The entrance to McCaig's Tower.
April 2007. My friend Robin from Australia inside the tower gardens.
Just a view through one f the many arches.
A view from the tower in March 06. Mull's mountains are still snow covered. The island in the bay is Kerera. St. Columba's RC cathedral is to the bottom right. Those with good eyesight may spot Lismore lighthouse in the distance.
Just a better view of the snows, and Kerera island with it's little marina.
Looking down on the Oban ferry terminus.
A better view of St. Columba's, and the white Lismore lighthouse.
For a small town Oban gets a lot of quite large ships calling in, the following are just some of the them.
There are several Caledonian MacBrayne ferries operating in and out of Oban. This one is the Isle of Mull. It spends it's days going back and forth from Oban to Craignure on Mull, a 45 minute trip, it does this several times day, every day. I have been on her about 6 times. Only £7 return for a foot passenger. I still get a great deal of pleasure watching her sail in and out of the harbour as the channel she has to take is very near the esplanade outside the cathedral.
I think this was an American cruise liner.
This little boat tied up at the jetty was the one I first went on to Mull. I went to Duart Castle, needless to say it took a bit longer than the ferry.
On the esplanade outside the cathedral.
Just two more tall ships at the north pier.
The Black Prince. June 09
Dunollie castle taken from the ferry.
Argyll Square. The church in the background is now an excellent Information centre. There are many churches in Oban, but not all are used now as places of worship. Two cathedrals, St. Columba's RC cathedral which is my church and the Episcopalian St.John's in George Street.
I am always impressed with the amount of planted up flower beds in Oban all the year round, although obviously better in the summer.
This Pub always produces a wonderful display.
Just one of the hotel car parks. This church is in the process of creating a sensory garden.
Outside the Corran Halls. This is the venue for many activities in Oban. We have the annual St. Columba;s bazaar there every August. I have seen the Moscow City ballet perform the Sleeping beauty there and it hosts many concerts, operas etc.
Again just outside the Corran Halls looking across one of Oban's bays.
April 2005
April 2005. Our first visit to Oban when we first visited Barochreal.
We always find a little friend to talk to or feed. Both these taken by Nigel in April 08.
Another popular view point is Pulpit hill. This view was taken from half way up to it. It shows the harbour, Ferry terminus and rail way station below and Red pier to the left.
A June view of the harbour from pulpit hill.
Looking across the roof tops to the ruins of the Hydro Hotel, which burnt down many years ago. As it had such a wonderful position I don't know why it hasn't been replaced.
Looking in the other direction towards Kerera island and Mull beyond. The clarity of light is usually better in the winter and hence clearer views.
I managed to get this shot one evening of the sea plane just taking off almost over the ferry. When I flew down to London in May to go to my college reunion, I flew back from Heathrow to Glasgow. I then got a taxi to the Science centre on the Clyde and flew back on this seaplane to Oban harbour. A 25 minute trip instead of 3 hours by bus or train. It was the most wonderful experience. The weather was fine and the views breathtaking.
