UM! Whisky Tour #60: Oban

Next up, the Gateway to the Isles... 'An t-Òban' (Little Bay in English). A wonderful summers day and the town is bustling with people and tourist. The Oban distillery sits in the centre of town just off the main harbour area... originally one of the first buildings in town, it actually predates the harbour and there still remain boat hooks on the distillery walls where the fisherman would tie up their launches... a row of shops and bars now hide these relics... the distillery is owned by Diageo, so alas, no filming within the working areas of the building, which is a shame as we were given an excellent and memorable tour...
