Bob Law: The Winter Wonders of Oban
The Scottish Western Highlands, with a scattered population, can sometimes seem cold, barren and rather bleak in November with endless days of rain, mist covered mountains and little obvious nightlife. The busy sea port of Oban bucks that trend however with ferries travelling from the mainland to various offshore islands, and the town, which lies in a natural bowl, sprawling over several small hills away from the harbour.
Oban at Night
At night the lights of Oban, from shoreline or from approaching ferry, give the place a magical glow and even in the depths of winter the town centre retains a lively feel with its pubs, shops, hotels and entertainment venues packing them in. For holiday makers it’s a gateway to offshore remote delights and fantastic scenery… for islanders it’s a shopping mecca and a taste of small city living yet still with a local feel to it. In good weather, even in November, sunsets can be spectacular and a huge range of outdoor activities lie on the doorstep. During the long dark nights it emits a comforting multi coloured glow with the famous tower lit up like a crown on top.
