AttractionsMcCaig's Tower, Oban. The famous landmark of McCaig's Tower is a Colosseum-like structure, built on a hill overlooking Oban Bay. The tower is nearly one hundred years old and stands approximately 70 metres above sea level, the height of the wall varying from 9 to 14 metres according to the different levels of the ground. It dominates the Oban skyline and the short steep walk to its viewing platform is well worth the effort. Location: On the outskirts of Oban.
