I'd like to suggest a photo of Oban for the book. I think it would be popular with many readers who will have been on holiday there in the past. There is also a shortage (so far) of Scottish pictures. Oban is special as a seaside resort, a passenger and cargo seaport and railway terminus. These old pics of Oban certainly show the greater influence that the railway had on seaside resorts - especially Oban and the huge area taken up by railway freight facilities. Oban also has some very impressive buildings so I think it should be considered.

Great pic - we were just looking at this yesterday for the book. Very good chance it will feature
