This evening, I am providing information on the town of Oban on Scotland’s West Coast.

This evening, I am posting information on Dunstaffnage Castle near Oban on the west of Scotland.
This unusual name is derived from the Old Norse stafr meaning staff. Dun=fort so the word translates as ‘fort on the staff ness’.
