McCaig’s Tower in Oban

If you visit the town of Oban, on the Scottish west coast, I recommend that you go up to McCaig’s Tower.  It was designed by the Scottish banker James Stuart McCaig as a monument to his family and a job creation scheme. But it was never completed.

It was a beautiful sunny September evening during my most recent visit to McCaig’s Tower.

There are wonderful views over the bay towards the island of Mull.

The structure has total of 94 arches with fifty on the top tier and forty four below.

I had planned to stay to watch the sunset. Although there was bright sunshine, the codl wind had me scurrying back to the warm of my hotel room before dusk.
