Ar­ran’s French con­nec­tion

The Arran Banner - - News -

Staff at Brod­ick Cas­tle and Lochranza Dis­tillery had a chance to prac­tice their French when a group from An­der­nos-les-Bains vis­ited.

Largs is twinned with the French At­lantic coast com­mu­nity, fa­mous for its oys­ters, in the Gironde re­gion and has wel­comed a 19-strong group on a five­day ex­change.

Dur­ing their stay, the group re­quested a visit to Ar­ran, which took place on Wed­nes­day.

For some, it was a re­turn to the is­land but for most it was their first visit. The group was ac­com­pa­nied by about 10 of their hosts since on ex­changes the vis­i­tors stay with lo­cal fam­i­lies.
