Argyll and the Isles Sights

Oa Peninsula

Fodor's Review

The southern Oa Peninsula, west of Port Ellen, is a region of caves that's rich in smuggling lore. At its tip, the Mull of Oa, is a monument recalling the 650 men who lost their lives in 1918 when the British ships Tuscania and Otranto sank nearby. Bring good, strong walking shoes.
