“Lovely views.”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

The McCraigs tower is worth walking up to for the views. You can also drive up as there is a car park next to it. Its impressive stood right on the top of the hill although I had to google about the history of it as there were no signs. Another free attraction as well and the grounds are well kept and smart.

“Great views, peaceful and well tended and free”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

It is well worth a visit to this folly. The views are excellent, the grounds are very well tended and there is no charge for admission. A good place for a picnic or just to sit on one of the many benches and relax. There is free parking close by.

“Impressive”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

I thought McCaig's Tower was really impressive when seen up close. It was well worth a bit of an uphill walk to see it. Lovely trees and plants at this time of the year too.

“Photographers dream”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

An unusual structure in the heart of Oban with fantastic views out across the bay. A great place to watch the sun go down (or come up!)!
