Oban & Mull 5 Days - Regent Hotel
Oban is undoubtedly the most popular resort and touring centre in the Western Highlands. It is a largely Victorian town and its most famous building, McCaig's Tower, an unfinished replica of Rome's Colosseum, dates from that period as do most of the hotels and public buildings. But Dunollie Castle, at the northern end of the bay, is a reminder that Oban has had a strategic importance for much longer than the last century. Oban is a lively place with the constant comings and goings in the harbour providing a never-ending source of interest. The view across the harbour to Kerrera is a delight, especially at night when there are often memorable sunsets (which can be quite breathtaking when seen from Pulpit Hill). There are excellent facilities for water sports of all kinds and plenty of shops. Entertainment is provided at the Corran Halls and Highland Theatre.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
