“Worth the climb to the top”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2012

The folly is brilliant and will avail you of terrific photos from the top of Oban. the story of why the Folly was built shows a caring man of means who thought of others and their families who needed employment. If you can do the climb and leave the car further below, will mean more when you get there.

This folly is a must see but the litter and broken bottles is off putting. Clear this up and this is a number 1 attraction
