The town of Oban, Scotland
Oban is a town of about more than 8000 inhabitants on the west coast of Scotland . It lies in a bay in front of the small island of Kerrera, so that Oban is characterized by a very sheltered position .
Until the 19th Century, Oban was a small fishing village. With the steamboat era and the railway connection in 1880 Oban grew to the center of the west coast and the main ferry port for the Inner and Outer Hebrides. There are connections to the islands of Mull, Colonsay, Coll, Tiree, Barra and South Uist.
McCaig's Tower above the city is the unfinished copy of the Colosseum in Rome. The local banker John Stuart McCaig let built the monument in 1897 to employ local workers during the working poor winter months and put his family a monument. Neither the planned tower in the interior of the building nor the statues of McCaig family were ever completed, as all members of the family died or impoverished until 1904. I hope you like it :-)
