Smartphone Saturday: McCaig’s Tower


Saturday is a wonderful day to not blog and hang out with my kiddos instead. That’s why on this last day of the week, you’ll see a simple, unedited photo captured by my Lumia 1020 smartphone.

Today’s photo shows the entrance to the only replica of the Roman Colosseum that is built in the hills above Oban, Scotland. Yes, I know. Philanthropist banker McCaig set out to build a full replica many moons ago, but was not able to construct anything other than the outer walls before he died,¬†earning his tower the nickname “McCaig’s Folly”. Today, McCaig’s tower remains as something of a dramatic little city park with a great view.
