For lovers of history and beautiful scenery, make your way down to McCaig’s Tower in Oban. The tower was built in 1897 and its purpose was to provide work in the town to local stonemasons and become an everlasting monument to the McCaig family themselves. The tower itself has situated a slight climb from the rest of the town. However, this is well worth it when greeted with the stunning views of Oban Bay and the islands. The garden inside the walls of the tower is an exciting escape.

Where is McCaig's Tower?

The tower is located in Oban town centre and is only a short walk from the station.

The building is currently a Grade A listed building and through McCaig’s architectural knowledge it still retains its Greek and Roman influences. So why not make your way down to Oban and enjoy the town, make sure to head on up to McCaig’s Tower and see the beautiful skyline and scenery of the town!
