DEL­E­GATES from the Ger­man re­gion of Bavaria vis­ited Dun­staffnage to cel­e­brate a part­ner­ship with Argyll and Bute that dates back 50 years.

The twin­ning ar­range­ment dates back to 1967 when Argyll County Coun­cil signed a char­ter with col­leagues in Am­berg-Sulzbach, which fo­cussed on young peo­ple and cul­tural ex­changes be­tween schools.

Argyll and Bute Coun­cil rep­re­sen­ta­tives showed the Bavar­ian del­e­ga­tion, in­clud­ing the chief ex­ec­u­tive and leader, why Argyll and Bute is a place where peo­ple want to live, work and do busi­ness.

Dur­ing the group’s four-day visit, the del­e­gates vis­ited Dun­staffan­age, SAMS and Xan­thella near Oban be­fore vis­it­ing Camp­bel­town.

They also dropped into Auchen­tul­lich Farm Shop in Ar­den, near He­lens­burgh, and en­joyed a Bute Com­mu­nity Band con­cert.

Dur­ing the visit, the coun­cil lead­ers signed a joint char­ter, or Urkunde, to sig­nify the im­por­tance of con­tin­u­ing and strength­en­ing the twin­ning part­ner­ship.
