WHAT a fantastic weekend it was in Oban. There was simply so much going on that it was hard to know what to focus on.
The town was absolutely buzzing – as it has been, in fairness, for weeks, despite not yet being the high season – with the fabulous Oban Live festival, the Oban Provincial Mòd and the Rotaty Club Am-Am golf competition. I have to confess that I did not make it to any of the Mòd events but I was at Oban Live on both Friday and Saturday, and played – like a three-legged donkey – in the charity golf day.
But the joy wasn’t limited to just the organised big-ticket events. All over Oban there was live music, with hotels and pubs hosting impromptu as well as scheduled gigs, as well as al fresco performances in the streets.
The atmosphere was amazing, even if the weather was a little less than we might have wished for.
As ever, these splendid occasions could not have happened without the incredibly hard work of a select band of people. I tip my tile to them all. You could not have done it any better.
