Oban Travel Tips & Suggestions

I was in Oban in August 2006 and I found it a very nice place -- quiet, small, perfect to visit by walking, and the inhabitants were tremendously kind. I loved its marine atmosphere and its "strange" weather -- it rained for ten minutes, then it stopped and there was sun for ten minutes more, and then it began raining again for ten minutes, then sunny. It was fun! Oh, and don't forget to raise your sight to the top of the hill -- you will see something like a coliseum, which actually is the mausoleum of a town's rich man.
When in Oban be sure to eat some Irish stew at O'Donnell's Irish Pub. The food is great and the staff is amazing.
Oban is a really cute place. You stay here for a night as part of the wonderful Macbackpackers tours and that's enough time to look around. Go to the old fashioned lollie shop. It's FABULOUS!!!
