Brandy Rock, Oban
Brandy Rock, Oban
A rock on the edge of the shore, beside Dungallan Park. It is a large lump of conglomerate, presumably it fell from the cliffs behind. The name may come from brandy smuggling, this could have been a popular landing spot.

Looking out across the Sound of Kerrera behind, a variety of yachts moored.
