Oban, Argyll and Bute

We stopped off in Oban overnight before getting the Calmac ferry to the Isle of Mull. Oban is a lovely little harbour town with only a small population of around 8,000, however during the tourist season this expands to 25,000 as testament to its immense popularity.  Owing to the clear blue skies and very warm weather, this was certainly in evidence as the  town was bursting at the seams.  The town itself is charming with very little modernisation and has numerous cafes and restaurants and, for the more energetic of you, there are numerous activities and day trips to take advantage of.  Oban is known as the seafood capital of Scotland, so if you are a seafood lover then there are countless opportunities around every corner to sate your appetite.
