Comment posted McGrigor slams HBOS on Islay businesses left beached by Susan Campbell.
The Royal Bank of Scotland moved their Islay Business Manager to Dunoon, from where the individual attends Islay’s Royal Bank branch monthly. It’s far from ideal, making accessing information and making changes much slower. Without being here full-time to see how businesses and their owners are faring on a day-to-day basis, ‘on the street’ as it were, it’s hard to see how a bank manager can truly know what’s going on within Islay’s economy.
HBOS business customers would be well advised to make every effort to keep their manager in Islay. A call centre will not know the business customers, and be unable to make informed decisions in collaboration with their customers.

knocknagael was a Department stud farm for a famous bloodline of Highland ponies too, until disbanded and stock sold (in the 1980s?) and there were one or two of the last stallions sold off in the displenishing as young colts which were still alive until fairly recently.

Saw roadside signs for BOW but thought it might be for an archery event ???
- Beavers, clearances, sugar, slaves, social climbing and homecoming
Well, it’s just a pity that now people wanting to walk to visit the Fairy Isles, on a public pathway, are now forbidden to go by signs and a warden because it’s near the ‘beavers’ site’ !
The only notification ever ‘received’ was a short article in the Oban Times.
Unfortunately, before the then deadline ahead of the heavy price increase (or fine?), there was no time to look into exactly why we are suddenly required to register our own septic tanks on our own property. Exactly what will this information be used for ?
Also, the online registration is far from straightforward, even for experienced internet users. It wasn’t made clear until one is into the online process that SEPA is going to charge you £1. for the privilege of filling in forms that THEY require.
