West Isles |
If the western highlands has a capital it is the town of Oban. The mainland of
the western highlands does not have many distilleries and this is still a thinly
populated part of Scotland. The first settlers arrived by sea and came to this
coast in 5000 BC, making their homes in caves in the cliffside. That story and
a later account of Scottish invasion from Antrim in Ireland are told on the
label of the Oban Malt.
