July 26 – Oban

We woke up  at a reasonable time.  After getting ready  and having breakfast we followed one  of the guidebooks tips, to follow the road through Glen Nevis to the end.  When this was done we drove back to Fort William and then continued south.  When we came closer to  Glen Coe we discovered a road round Loch Leven.  We stopped at a Shell station in Glen Coe which had nearly everything.  After  Lennarth bought a plastic hammer for the tent pegs we continued on our way to Oban.  Immediately when we came to Oban we chose as we had earlier to drive out to the camping site, to make sure we would have a pitch for the tents.  When the pitches were organised and lunch was eaten we went for a walk  around the town,  book places at McTavish’s  visit the distillery and Craig’s Tower.  Oban is a very beautiful harbour town. It has a lively center and as usual pleasant people.  At the distillery Patrik  learned how to drink Daluine the proper way, a very nice experience.  He even bought an Oban Distiller Edition.  After our walk around the town center we drove back to the camp site to prepare  for the evening.  McTavish’s Kitchen was an exciting experience.  Lennarth ordered Haggis, which was really tastey and filling.  When we were enjoying our dessert and coffee the Scottish Show started and continued for two hours.  Lots of bagpipes, fiddles and accordions, highland fling and gaellic  songs. We then drove back to the camping site and slept.
