Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Beginning with a climb to the fine viewpoint of Pulpit Hill above Oban, this walk explores the countryside immediately to the south of the town. It can either be walked as an approach to Kerrera, as a one-way walk with the bus back (school times/dates only so careful planning needed), or as described here, as a circuit in its own right.
