Oban Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Little bay of caves. Along the shores of lorn lies a record of man far more ancient than that of any city in the land. The first settlers arrives on the mainland in 5,000 BC and sheltered in the natural caves of the land then known as an ob. The distillery cave was one such shelter hidden in the creag a bharrain cliffs which rise dramatically above the oban distillery. 498 AD was the fateful year when Fergus, Angus, and Loarn, sons of King Erc of the Scotti mounted an eastern expedition from the Glens of Antrim to invade and colonies the Oban shores, naming their little kingdom Calriada. Fergus Mac Erc became the first monarch, his seat the great fortress of Dunaad. Angus and Loarn help the lands to the North and South to which the latter Loarn gave his name. The monarch moved north to the ancient Pictish fortress of Dun A Mhonaidh near Oban. The Scotti brought with them the sacred block of time worn red sandstone known as Lia Fail the symbolic Stone of Destiny. The coastland of the Gaelic people known as Earra Gael fell to the dreaded Viking overlorship in the middle of the eighth century when their rule was at its harshest. It was then that the warrior King Somerled mac Gillibride became foremost in Oban history. Part Viking, part Celt, he rallied his oppressed and despairing countrymen leading them towards a new and lasting freedom from their oppressors. His spirit is said to live upon the precipitous crag of Dun Ollaigh which for centuries has been the home for descendants of his son and heir Dougall mac Somhairlie, the founder of the great Clan MacDougall.
