Evening in Oban

Approaching on the ferry. Our B&B was up on the hill beneath the folly.
Langoustines at Coast Restaurant. When I first read these on a menu I did not know what they were. Then someone said they were a local delicacy in the Hebrides. But they were not available on subsequent menus until our last night here in Oban. They ars like huge prawns or small lobsters. I asked if there was any special eating etiquette and was told there was not. The sweetest meat is in the claws which one crushes with the pliers provided.
Unfortuately it was shut and I had not have a dram after my meal.
Sunset from the harbour.
We did not manage a spectacular sunset in the islands but our night in Oban made up for it.
