What's so good about Oban & Argyll?
That's a question I hear often......
Even after having been born, bred and raised in Oban and spent most of my working life travelling round Argyll I still have WOW! moments when I drive round a corner or reach the crest of a hill, and stop and gaze in wonder at the panorama laid out before me.
Wild seas crashing against rocks, peaceful bays and inlets sheltered by rugged hills, wide open rolling countryside or stunning sunsets like the one below.
The sunset over Oban bay is an ever changing kaleidoscope of colour with soft and subtle violets and purple giving way to vibrant, angry reds fading slowly to a gentle burnt orange as the sun reflects off wispy clouds and water before slowly dipping below the distant island hills.
Yup, that's a wow! moment for me. No matter how often I see it, I still have to stop and watch a while. When you see it for yourself it will be one of those memories forever engraved on your minds eye.
But this area isn't just scenery and pretty pictures, there are numerous and varied activities and days out for the whole family be they aged eight or eighty - and I just know that given half a chance you'll come to love this part of the world and the people as much as I do.
What's in it for you?The intention of this site is to guide you, the visitor (or resident) through not only the well known beauty spots and activities, but also to cover the stuff you may not find in the glossy brochures. Perhaps point you towards a vantage point or day out you wouldn't normally find.
What's in it for both of us?Just because I've lived here since the year dot, doesn't mean I know it all - far from it!
