Oban Stories and Tips

Oban Rare Breeds Park

Heilan' Coo Photo, Oban, Scotland

The park is located near Oban, several miles down a single lane road. The park is primarily designed for children so you can expect lots of cute and cuddly animals for the kids to pet and feed.


Many of the animals are behind fences, but there are a couple of areas that humans can enter and see the animals up close (watch where you step!). The exhibits are mostly different kinds of sheep, although there are some "heilan' coos" (the rare wholly highland version of the cow), deer, donkeys, etc. as well. You can buy bags of food at the gate to feed the animals. It's definitely worthwhile if you have kids.
