New Year with gusto

The Oban Times - - Letters -

Sir, As a reg­u­lar visi­tors to Oban, my wife and I have, in the past, been dis­ap­pointed in the de­cline in the way the town marked the Bells, es­pe­cially the con­tri­bu­tion (or lack of it!) by the CalMac fer­ries and North­ern Light­house ves­sel, which at one time sounded in the New Year with gusto.

How­ever this year we must say things were much im­proved. The fire­works were su­perb and the ships horns gave a much more en­thu­si­as­tic fan­fare.

Thank you Oban for mark­ing Hog­manay with greater en­thu­si­asm and we are al­ready look­ing for­ward to the 500-mile trip north for the next one. Neil and Tina Par­son­son
