  • If you are the priest I surprised here, I am really sorry. I was walking back from Dunollie Castle in the morning and needed to catch a bus. I wanted to stop by the church and say a quick prayer for m...  more »

  • Oh dear. Afraid we didn't really like this church which failed to live up to its grandiose exterior and position on the northern promenade of Oban. Because of its comparatively young age there is nothing much of historical worth inside the church and equally not much of beauty. The interior walls are bare and gloomy. There is one, not very good, painting of St. Columba. No pews, only rows of chairs and a huge space around the simple altar which would at least keep the bishop fit. And the cold!! I would hate to have to endure a service here. I know the information says that the diocese is quite far-flung but poor but really, the church has little to attract the curious traveller. Sorry.
  • Tuesday afternoon, 5PM and they didn't open us the door so we can't enter We had to leave...
  • Really warm inside but quiet and chilled out.
  • Very interesting. Visited the Cathedral last week while staying at the Hotel next door.
  • Nice hotel right on the water itself.
