Oban, Scotland

Aug 07, 2019 - Lord of the Glens


If Oban, Scotland, is known for anything, it is whisky. If it were Ireland, whisky would be spelled with an “e” and it would look like this: whiskey. But it’s not, so no hate mail. Oban, however, is more than just the distillery bearing its name. It is a vibrant community with a connection to the sea and fisheries that are found here. It is also a bustling tourist town and has many sites to see and participate in.

About the Author

Steve Morello

Naturalist/Certified Photo Instructor

Steve Morello has had a long and colorful career in the natural history world. Born in New Jersey he was lucky to be able to summer on the shores of Cape Cod. Whether it was exploring the tidal pools, snorkeling along the beach, or hiking in the dunes, it all came together to instill in him a deep connection to the natural world. It was no surprise that he would return to the Cape as a whale researcher in his adult years. It was on the Cape that Steve first became involved in guiding, and for 15 years acted as naturalist on whale watching boats in the Gulf of Maine. Steve worked with groups creating environmental education material for school programs and soon found another one of his passions, photography.
