See this stunning spot on a @macbackpackers trip this summer!
  • The best part of visiting #Oban isn't just the town itself, but the many isles you can reach nearby. Often referred to as "The Gateway to the Isles", your time in this west coast town should be spent exploring the many beautiful isles in the area such as #Staffa (pictured above), #Kerrera, #Mull, #Iona and many more. Our @obanbackpackers in the city centre is your perfect base to explore the town and the beautiful #InnerHebrides.
