NM8530 : Columba Hotel & White Building

taken 7 years ago, near to Oban, Argyll And Bute, Great Britain

Columba Hotel & White Building
Columba Hotel & White Building
The Columba Hotel is another example of the fine architecture still to be found in Oban. On the left, the "White Building" was once a ferry terminal. It was sold by the Council to a "bookmaker" some years ago, but the change of use application was declined by the local licencing board. Reverting to Council ownership, it became a charity shop and is for sale again.

Although much has been lost in recent years, and some historic buildings remain under threat, Oban can still boast a significant number of Category A, B and C listed buildings.
