For­mer Ar­gyll Ho­tel site is a real eye­sore

The Oban Times - - News -

WHAT is hap­pen­ing with the old Ar­gyll Ho­tel site?

The fenced- off derelict area is in a key part of the town, right be­hind the Oban Inn and be­fore the Re­gent Ho­tel on the Es­planade.

The old Ar­gyll Ho­tel was de­mol­ished at the end of De­cem­ber 2011 and the plot has been sadly aban­doned since.

But the se­cu­rity fenc­ing around the va­cant lot has be­come dam­aged and the site is lit­ter- strewn.

Now we are into Fe­bru­ary and look­ing for­ward to spring, the tourist sea­son is im­mi­nent.

It would do Oban’s rep­u­ta­tion no good at all for the Ar­gyll Ho­tel site to re­main an eye­sore.

It would be great if an en­trepreneur came up with a plan to build there but, at the very least, who­ever is re­spon­si­ble for the site should tidy it up and make it se­cure again.
