Pulpit Hill

(Crannag a' Mhinisteir)

A summit in the southwest of Oban (Argyll and Bute), Pulpit Hill (Gael: Crannag a' Mhinisteir) rises to 72m (239 feet) and offers spectacular views over the town, and across Oban Bay towards Kerrera and Mull. The summit is marked by a geographical indicator, in stoneware by Doulton of Lambeth (London), which was placed here in 1930. Nearby is the Minister's Stone, said to have been used by preachers to give sermons to outdoor congregations who met here. Development now surrounds the hill. A radio transmitter referred to as being on Pulpit Hill is actually on the northeastern end of Druim Mor, a quarter-mile (0.5 km) to the southwest.
