Strath of Appin to Oban

 

Misty Weather

Via the Strath of Appin we are on our way to Oban, since the list for shopping is in fact very long.

Approaching Ardgour for the Corran-Ferry rain starts falling.

 

Heavy showers at the Bridge of Ballachulish.

This is the town were 'James of the Glen' was executed in 1752. However, the lawsuit was very unfair.

When we are approaching Castle Stalker suddenly the rain stops and the sun is shining.

 

Castle of Stalker located in the Loch Linnhe, built around 1320.

Castle Dunstaffnage, partly the walls are 10 feet thick.

This castle was built for Alexander II, when he started the attacts against the Northmen.

 

Now we reached Oban. Time for shopping.

By the way: the little purple shop to the right side is a chocolate factory .

McCaig's Tower in the backround, Oban Destillery on the right.

 

These small alley ways of Oban are somewhat attracting to me...

Town

Here is the main shopping mile, George-Street.

Corran Esplanade is to be seen to the left.

 

This is Oban's main traffic junction, close to the Tourist Information.

Driving from here via Combie Street, you will find Tesco, Aldi and Lidl, located at Lynn Road.

Fish 'n Chips for 4 persons amounting to a total cost of 20 Pds. The rest of the meal we pass on to the nosy, ravenous seagulls.
