Oban gateway to the Scottish Islands

Oban Caledonian MacBrayne ferries to the Islands, including Mull

As the cottage is 10 miles north of Edinburgh a day trip takes about 3 hours each way.
Scenic, sometimes snow capped mountains.

Road sign in Gaelic:-

Viaduct at Glen Ogle is worth looking out for.

Old fashioned corrugated garage just after the viaduct on the way up.

The pier has a marvellous fish stall with langoustines, dressed crab, own smoked salmon ( tasters) lobster tails, prawn sandwiches etc.
