Oban is a small harbour town on the West coast of Scotland.
It is a popular tourist destination, and well connected by ferries to a number of islands.
As such we decided to stop by on our way to the Isle of Mull last month.
Aside from the beautiful sea views (and many jellyfish!),
the town’s most noticeable feature has to be McCaig’s Tower.
Back in town, our next appointment was with the Oban Distillery.
Heeding online advice, we had pre-booked places on an afternoon tour.
This was my first distillery tour, and I enjoyed it even as a non-whisky drinker.
Our guide explained the processes, flavours and history of Oban whisky.
We tried two fiery samples and were allowed to keep our glasses as a memento.
