Combining this route with the Pulpit Hill and Gallanach, Oban – A scottish World would be a very good idea if you don’t hesitate walking about 10 km in a day and even if you need a break you can just stop in the centre of Oban first and get some coffee or something to eat before you head on up to the most iconic sight in Oban – MacCaig’s Tower.

Heading up there you can see parts of the town you usually wouldn’t visit and still enjoy a nice short walk. You know I usually take away stars for en-street walking but here I am not doing that since this is a town walk and it is not meant to be all nature, even though especially at MacCaig’s Tower itself, there is a lot of nature.

At the end or the beginning, depending on where you chose to start, you can enjoy great views over the sea and up towards Dunollie Castle in front of you. From here you can still extend the walk and head to the castle. Since I did the walk the day I arrived in Oban it was already late and I didn’t really have enough time to do so but it looked great still and I regret not doing it.

A solid 4 out of 5-star rating for this route, being a town walk but still offering great views and a lovely spend time!

Ignore the walking trousers sound 🙂 on this walk around MacCaig’s Tower
