Arrival in Oban

A rumble of engines coming down the Sound roused us from our reverie in the Tolkienesque landscape of Lorn. It was the MV Isle of Mull, en route from Oban to Scalasaig on Colonsay.

We were soon back on the water and Jim B got some edging practice in...

...below the grounds of Gallanach House.

It was not long before we were approaching the north end of the island of Kerrera.

We then turned a corner and there we were, right in the midst of the hubbub of Oban harbour, round which the town nestles below McCaig's Folly, which is perched on the hill above.
