Dunollie Museum, Castle and Grounds

Oban War & Peace Museum
A small, by-donation museum featuring a collection of artefacts and memorabilia from local history.
One of Oban's two "must visit" perspectives, Pulpit Hill rises to a height of around 239 feet above the south side of the bay. McCaig's Tower, located over the east side of the bay, is the other. The great views Pulpit Hill offers beyond the island of Kerrera, which is located across Oban Bay, allow one to truly appreciate the intricate interactions between the islands and the mainland surrounding the Firth of Lorn.
McCaig's Tower & Battery Hill
McCaig's Tower, often referred to as McCaig's Folly, is a notable tower on Battery Hill that provides a view of the town of Oban in the Scottish region of Argyll. It has two storeys and 94 lancet arches, and it is made of Bonawe granite that was extracted from quarries on Loch Etive across Airds Bay from Muckairn.
