In Oban Scotland, The Dunollie Woodland Trail, will lead you into The Witches Woods.
The deeper you go into the forest, the older it becomes.
The trees in the forest were twisted over time into witch-like shapes by the actions of fierce coastal winds.
Some of the oaks are over 400 years old.
The Witches Woods surround Dunollie Castle,
which was once home to the most powerful clan in Western Scotland, the MacDougalls.
The remains of the castle and the old manor house can be toured.
I was first scheduled to visit Oban about 30 years ago, but The Queen was doing a walk about, so our plans were changed. I am happy to have finally visited this charming town and the gorgeous Hebrides.
We are home at The Holler now, but it is cheers and BOO to you from misty Oban’s Witches Woods~
