Exploring Scotland's West Coast


The West Coast of Scotland is lined up with a variety of attractions that will blow your mind, dramatic sceneries along the sea, ancient castles to explore and spectacular wildlife to feast your eyes on.

OBAN

Oban is the unopposed capital of North Argyll and is informally named as ‘The Gateway to the Isles’. It is rather busy town with an impressive range of accommodation and mouthwatering cuisines and varied attractions. It is the seafood capital of Scotland offering a remarkable number award winning restaurants.

The Colosseum look alike, the MacCaig’s tower is perhaps one of the most outstanding landmarks of Oban and has appeared in numerous postcards. It stands tall on one of the hills surrounding Oban and only a few minutes’ walk from the city center of Oban. You can take memorable pictures as you pose next to the tower and also enjoy the views of the town below and other surrounding features.

Visit the Oban Distillery which has withstood the test of time and is one of Scotland’s oldest sources of single malt Scotch whiskey. It was built in 1794 and still runs and located in within the town of Oban.

Explore the Dunollie Castle which is located near the shore and step back in time to the centuries gone by and relish its long history. It is open to the public all year round and a fine location for historic excursion. Oban self catering opportunities are abound, and they provide the perfect base to explore the Hebrides of the west coast of Scotland.

THE HEBRIDES

The Hebrides is an archipelago located off the Western Coast of Scotland and consists of the Outer and Inner Hebrides. The Outer Hebrides are a number of smaller islands located relatively within close proximity of each other. The major regions of the Outer Hebrides are Lewis, Harris, North and South Uist, Taransay, Benbecula and St Kilda. Each of these regions has its unique attractions which are different from the rest. Harris is home to the mysterious Callanish Stones which predate the Egyptian pyramids. If you explore Barra you will find the age old Kisimul Castle that was once occupied by the Macniel Clan. For a more natural experience the Islands of St Kilda have an abundant variety of birdlife and an abandoned village with stories that will enchant you. If you are tired of seeing seals only on the screen of your TV; head to North Uist where the seals are plentiful.

The Inner Hebrides is yet another group of isles found off the west coast of Scotland and divided into the Northern and southern Islands. Isle of Skye is one of the most popular touristic destinations found in the Northern Hebrides. Mull, Islay and Jura are found on the Southern Islands. Isle of Skye is adored for its natural beauty; generally the Inner Hebrides are full of attractions from ancient castles and wildlife to scenic beauty. Castles such as Dunvegan Castle are still occupied by members of the MacLeod’s Clan and a number of ancient treasures can be found here.

Exploring the Hebrides can be a fantastic experience as they hold historic and natural appeal to anyone who dares to be lured by their charms.
