Bus shelters needed
Regular readers may recall that last summer I wrote lamenting the lack of a bus service between Oban town centre and Ganavan on Sundays.
Now I have been contacted by a correspondent, who wishes to remain anonymous, about a similar problem.
The letter-writer says: ‘There are no bus shelters anywhere on the way from Oban station to the war memorial and Ganavan.
‘And when you have completed a walk to Ganavan, the toilets are shut.
‘First, people are being encouraged to keep fit and walk, but when they get to Ganavan there is no bus shelter in which to wait for the bus back, if it is raining. It is the same all the way from Oban station: there is nowhere to rest out of the rain while waiting for a bus.
‘What we need, in the following order, is: 1: a bus shelter at Ganavan, 2: a bus shelter at the war memorial, 3: a bus shelter at Wee Ganavan (half way), 4: a bus stop at Dunollie Castle.
‘We have waited years for the council to give us some shelter on that road. What a difference it would make.’
What about it, Argyll and Bute Council?
