Oban Christmas Celebration
5 Days Away
Situated in a perfect horseshoe bay, and protected by the island of Kerrera, the town of Oban is the ‘Gateway to the Isles’ its busy port a hive of activity. Dominated by McCaig’s Tower, a walk to this folly perched on the summit of Battery Hill, is rewarded with stunning views of not only Oban but the islands which its port serves. A visit to Oban Distillery is a must, situated in the centre of the town it is the ideal way to learn about whisky, and perhaps sample a dram or two. With two cathedrals to visit, a museum, and multitude of cafés and restaurants, there is plenty to see in Oban itself, but a short stroll along the seafront to Dunollie Castle and Museum is an incredibly interesting place to discover about the history of this town and its inhabitants.
Situated on the shores of Loch Linnhe and in the shadow of Scotland’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, Fort William is the largest town in the highlands. Now a bustling tourist town, the ruins of the Old Fort after which the town was named, can be found on the water’s edge, which provides an interesting history of the town.
