Purposely ignoring the Warning Sign once at the castle, we took full advantage of the completely un-secured site...walked all through it, up to the second level, peaking into dark crevices and passageways. It was a brilliant old ruin. 15th century, according to my intense Wikipedia research. And yet again, we had the entire site to ourselves with not another soul in sight. I seriously think I'm spoiled for all my future travels....I'll kill myself next time I'm in a crowded museum in the centre of some giant European city.
It was a leisurely 30-minute stroll back into Oban after we had satisfied ourselves with the castle, and we just had a few spare minutes to peak into some cute shops and buy some drinks before grabbing our bags from the hostel and jumping back on the train to Glasgow.
