Argyll, Bute and Oban walks

Oban is the gateway to the Islands and one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Scottish Highlands. It is the best known town of Argyll, an extensive area of the Highlands. The scenery varies from the delightful coastline, running many miles around the peninsulas of Kintyre and Cowal, through the renowned and mighty Munros such as Ben Cruachan to the softer, forested landscapes further south, split by long sea and fresh-water lochs. Towns such as Dunoon, Inveraray, and Rothesay on the Isle of Bute are a reminder of the days when paddle-steamers transported the holidaying masses from Glasgow to these scenic havens.
