St Columba's Cathedral (Oban)

[St Columba's Cathedral]

St Columba's Cathedral is a cavernous building dominating the north end of Oban. Built gradually over the years between 1932 and 1953, the cathedral is the mother church for the Catholic diocese of Argyll and the Isles: a huge region stretching from the Outer Hebrides in the north to Arran in the south. Probably impressive more for its sheer scale rather than its beauty, it's nevertheless well worth the short walk along the Esplanade from Oban town centre.
