A Trip to Oban

2 Feb

For my 24th birthday we travelled to Kinlochleven to do some ice climbing. I enjoy rock climbing but found ice climbing a lot more challenging, I think it will take a while for me to master the technique! Following the ice climbing we stayed in Oban overnight in a lovely sea view room. We enjoyed the spa and a fantastic 6 course tasting menu. The next door we explored Oban. The photographs below are taken from the McCaig Tower a prominent landmark. After lunch in Oban we began the 4.5 hour journey home to Cumbria. On the way home I spotted Kilchurn Castle illuminated by the sunshine and we stopped on the roadside to take some photographs!

      Thank you! Studying at university in Scotland I had heard of Oban but never visited, I think a lot of Scotland is very picturesque. I would like to return to Oban one day and travel on the ferry to the Isle of Mull.
