Depart the pier on foot for a guided tour of Oban.  Walk up the steep hill to McCaig’s Tower, commissioned by a local banker and philanthropist to provide winter work for the local stonemasons.  The steep climb is well worth the effort for the views over the busy harbour and out to the nearby islands. Returning to the seafront the route leads to St Columba’s cathedral, the seat of the Roman Catholic Bishop of Argyll and the Isles.  The simple interior of the cathedral contrasts with its bold exterior of pink Peterhead and blue Inverawe granite. 

Explore this bustling seaside town at your own leisure or return to the pier accompanied by the guide.
