In the nineteenth century Oban became the transport hub of the Highlands, making it an incredibly easy place to get to for tourists wishing to reach the islands and enjoy the famed scenery of this part of the world. Over a century later, it remains one of most popular Highland destinations. Landmarks such as the McCaig tower and Oban Distillery, plus steam locomotives and the old canopied station, feature alongside a bustling George Street and esplanade. Steamers in the bay, armies of herring gutters on the quay and a photograph of the Oban Hotel on fire add up to a wide-ranging selection of pictures covering the town. Carding Mill Bay, Soroba and Connel Bridge are also featured.
