Worth the drive up the hill. Free car parking at the top. Few steps to climb but once to the top it’s really beautiful. There’s a viewing platform looking over Oban and can see for miles across the sea.

Steep walk up to McCaigs Tower but well worth it when you reach the top. The views are spectacular.

If you aren't feeling as energetic or have any difficulty walking you can drive to the base of the tower. There is a small car park that's also free.

Entry to the tower is free and there are no time restrictions on how long you can stay. There is a small garden at the top within the tower and a couple of benches.

There are also a couple of benches on the viewing platform where you can sit and take in the views.

We cheated and drove directly to the car park which is situated on a steep drive but is just behind the tower.
The views from the viewing points are stunning showing off the lovely town and surrounding islands.

McCraig's Tower is a nice place to visit in Oban. You will get great views of the town and harbor. It's cool but not that greatly historic. It was a good something to do.
