Oban

Gateway to the Isles or at least some of them.

Love the place ever since i was taken there as a boy with the BB...

228th based at St Francis in the East with Captain Neil Dunn and Andy Masterson happy days remembered fondly.
I return to Oban often
Alex Glass

At the end of the year together with my wife and 7 of our friends we took the ferry from Oban to Mull to be there for the New Year.

This selection of photos were taken from the ferry as it headed for Mull.

Oban with the BB Cybers - we went to Whitley Bay, Broughty Ferry, North Berwick and Morecambe. We called it camping but we always stayed in some sort of hall. Great days

Did Whitley Bay, Morecambe, Torquay, Oban, Berwick, and Etterick Bay ...

Did the camping malarky with a huge big marquee for meal times and a big pit with a plank well yi kin guess what that was for ....

Morcambe camp was beside a plum orchard and i think us east end kids stripped those trees bare

Fingers crossed for that one then,hopefully no premature ejaculation this time.


It has certainly put Oban on the map though.

Loving all these photos.  I spend a lot of time in Oban (even got married there!), so lots of familiar scenes there.

I am spending a ton of time there lately at weekends as my mate has just moved up there. It's a place i was always fond of but really only as a road to somewhere else.
