Oban

Distance: 8.5km; Ascent: 200m; with Lynsey & Isabel
See route in new window

Due to the car having developed a new feature, we were forced to spend the day in Oban whilst the problem was being investigated.  Therefore we decided to do the walk from Oban detailed in "All-Terrain Pushchair Walks: Argyll & Lochaber" for the afternoon.

We walked up past Polvinster Duck Pound, where we were promised that ducks were always present; however there were none to be seen today; nevertheless, it was a pleasant spot.  After passing through some woods, we reached McCaig's tower, which was based on the Coliseum in Rome but seemed slightly bizarre in Oban.  However the views of Oban, Loch Linnhe, Kerrera, Mull and Lismore were excellent.  We returned to the sea front and enjoyed a welcome ice cream :)
