Oban, and a trip to Mull, Staffa and Iona

A travel blog entry by abercromby56


By ferry and car from Islay to Oban on the Mainland. A bustling place...I think I was last there when I was 5, so I can't report on the changes really.

A travel blog entry by janetanne


... that is why I was in Oban.
It's so hard to get used to the winter months here in the highlands as it isn't light until about 8am and the sun sets about 4pm.
