McCaig's Folly Oban Pictures

mccaig folly oban scotland pictures and photographs images of Scottish and scotland landscapes

This is a picture of McCaig's Folly which towers over Oban in Scotland. The folly was built over a three year period starting in 1897 by John Stewart McCaig an Oban banker of considerable wealth as the cost of the folly was in the region of 5000 (UK pounds). Ultimately a pointless (and unfinished) memorial to himself, the original plan was for a museum to be housed in the structure along with a central tower.

This part of the picture collections of Scottish photographs shows the variety of the Scottish landscapes and natural features which make up the country of Scotland. There are further pictures which show such diverse topics as scottish castles to images of industrial landscapes.

This set of pictures were taken by the Young Enterprise group of Loudoun Academy in Ayrshire (2005-06) who sold them to this site as part of their project. The group were particularly successful and won their regional finals.
