A wealthly banker, Stuart McCaig, designed and commissioned the building of the folly between 1897 and 1902 as a lasting monument to his family and to provide work for the local stonemasons during the winter months - it is well worth walking or driving up to witness the breath-taking views from the folly.

"Lovely Bay Apartment"
We thoroughly enjoyed our three night break at Little Bay Apartment. It's in a great location for enjoying Oban, particularly for the ferry terminal. The decor and cleanliness were impeccable while the owners Jane & Kevin could not have been more helpful in responding to queries prior to our arrival.
The little extra touches such as biscuits, snacks, DVDs and books made it a real home from home.
We wouldn't hesitate to go back and would definitely recommend it to anyone considering a visit to the area.

"It was perfect."
We stayed in Little Bay Apartment in July 2014. It was better than we could imagine. It was the first the first long trip with our children and they loved this place! This is a perfect family apartment! A lovely place with Everything that you need for a peaceful holiday. Clean, tidy and full of details for children and parents: toys, games, fluffy toys, books and dvds. Wide and comfortable rooms and awesome living room. The TV screen was big, but Oban Bay views from the apartment were better Everything was absolutely charming, the apartment and the owners. Oban was our first stop in Scotlamd, after we went to Skye and Edinburgh, we stayed in good apartments, Yet we remembered all the time Little Bay, because was the Best. We hope we Will come back one day.
Thank you for your lovely review of Littlebay Apartment, we are glad you and your children enjoyed your stay and would love to welcome you back again sometime.
