The Oban Times - - Letters -

We asked last week for peo­ple to nom­i­nate what they think is the most beau­ti­ful part of Oban.

Kevin Keen posted: ‘I like the view from the road at the top of Ja­cobs Lad­der, looks over the dis­tillery, the pier then over Ker­rera etc. Al­ways good place for a sun­set too.’

Roy Sum­mers said: ‘ The view from Eader­glynn at top of Bealach an Righ across Oban Bay. Al­though I don’t think the yel­low build­ing im­proves it!!’

Maggie Archer wrote: ‘For me it is The Tower over look­ing the shore. Pars­ley, a Maine Coon Cat ( very fa­mous in Oban) wears a tracker when out and about. His mama takes pic­tures and posts them on his FB page. You should find him and post a pic­ture. He hangs out at The Bal­moral and he loves The Tower and the lo­cal pubs. I am se­ri­ous he’s fa­mous all over the world.’

John Muir sug­gested: ‘Oban it­self..l worked on the oil­rigs for 27yrs..in my 2 weeks leave..l spent a lot of time go­ing up to Oban from Ar­dr­ish aig..just love the place..great shops..friendly na­tives..the Ducati fam­ily ...the late Wul­liie Kerr.. John Stod­dard..Kevin Bur­nett..just the mem­o­ries of years gone by..but Obans the best town on this side of the Mis­sis­sippi.’

Danni Hay of­fered: ‘ The view from the pier straight out past Dunol­lie cas­tle and the maiden Isle. Not con­demned build­ings or coun­cil mon­strosi­ties.’

Carine Baker posted: ‘Look­ing across the bay to Ker­rera and be­yond to the ma­jes­tic and be­yond it to Mull. Es­pe­cially in win­ter with its snow capped peaks.’ Siob­hán Ni Rach­tuir said: ‘view from mc­caigs tower had to be in­cluded.’ Murdo MacKen­zie wrote: ‘Look­ing up to Soroba.’ Al­lan Strang Jnr posted: ‘ The view to Mull and Morvern with Ker­rera and Lis­more be­low. Cer­tainly not any of your pics above surely!

Dougie We­ston quipped: ‘One of ma re­furbed bath­rooms in the Royal.’
