Tucked into a bay at Argyll Peninsula's top, on Scotland's central west coast, Oban is a centre for Gaelic culture and history, as well as a ferry port for the islands. As visitors approach the town they will see the replica of the Colosseum of Rome, McCaig's Tower, built by a local banker in 1900. Argyll, Clan Campbell's home, was once the ancient Scottish Kingdom of Dalriada. The ruins of Dunadd Castle can be seen in mist-shrouded Kilmartin Glen, one of the most beautiful in Scotland, where a weathered rock marks where Scottish kings were crowned until 11th century. Nearby, stone circles witness to a civilization that dates back 5,000 years. Then visit Loch Fyne, where the Duke of Argyll, present head of Campbells, makes his home at Inverary Castle. The 19th century castle was admired by Walter Scott as a fine example of Scottish baronial style.
Highlights: McCaig's Tower, Dunadd Castle, Inverary Castle
