It was definitely worth the walk up a steep hill to visit this tower. Wonderful views over the whole area.

“Marked down because of my stupidity”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Decent hike up to the top of the hill (from Dunheanish, our hotel, less than 100 metres).

Great views of Oban but whatever you do don't walk on the grass if it is wet. I did, and paid the price with a very heavy fall.

My fault, no-one elses. You have been warned.
