Oban has lots hap­pen­ing this holiday week

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

THE school hol­i­days are upon us again this week and it seems no time since the chil­dren went back after the sum­mer, writes Oban town am­bas­sador Kay McDon­ald.

It’s lovely to have had at least a few days of dry weather so far for them and it’s the best time of year to get out and about for walks in all the fallen leaves.

A per­fect place to walk along to is Dunol­lie Mu­seum, Cas­tle and Grounds, all the joy of a wood­land walk and then an ex­cit­ing place to ex­plore with a Faerie Day and a Clan Day among the things planned dur­ing the hol­i­days, as well as an ex­hi­bi­tion called Mov­ing Minds which looks in­ter­est­ing for all ages.

Have a wee look at their web­site for more in­for­ma­tion or check Oban Town Di­ary to keep you up to date.

For the quiz go­ers among you, there is also some­thing to look for­ward to on Fri­day night in the Ma­sonic Lodge where there’s a quiz in aid of Marie Curie and mul­ti­ple scle­ro­sis, both good causes to sup­port and a good night out into the bar­gain.

If you’re look­ing for other things to do to amuse chil­dren then look no fur­ther than At­lantis Leisure and Oban Phoenix Cin­ema, both of which have lots to keep you busy no mat­ter what the weather throws at you.

I must also say how de­lighted I am that BID4Oban had such a suc­cess­ful bal­lot – now I have lots to look for­ward to, in­clud­ing a Hal­loween party to or­gan­ise, fire­works and the rein­deer pa­rade, to name but a few.

Last week’s photo was the top of the old bell tower from Oban High School and this week’s is in the cen­tre of the town – if you can spot it.
