Oban Experience

Hi,
I have a weeks holiday with the wife booked in Oban for next week.
I will be able to go out on the bike in the morning a few times, as long as I am back showered and ready for lunch.
I have found the 50 odd mile loop to Taynuilt, Inverinan, Kilninver and Loch Nell. Anyone have any experience of this route?
ie surface, traffic and unexpected double digit gradients?
Also, any suggested 30-45 mile loops?
Cheers!

I am not sure. You have no chance.

    FWIW in case anyone stumbles across this thread, Oban is a hidden gem for cyclists.
    You may need to wear a little more clothing but the paths (which have been done right),roads and scenery are outstanding.

    You can take a ferry over to Lismore, and do a nice loop that way too
