The Leaping Waters at the Black Lynn Burn, the wood carving at the Sea Life Sanctuary at Benderloch and the Brass Ensemble at the Oban Phoenix Cinema provided three unusual evens in the Oban Winter Festival programme for Sunday 18th November,
The laser leapt the burn – and here you can see just where the leaping is to be found.
The squirrels emerged under the chain saw at a very well attended wood carving demonstration at the Sea Life Sanctuary.
The brass boomed from the Oban Phoenix Cinema.
The endless enchantment of the generosity of that white bearded, red cloaked gentleman – who just cannot stay away from Oban – cast its spell again.
And the A83 is under landslide alert again, with the emergency diversion route nowhere near ready. Just what the tireless organisers of this event do not deserve - aiming their efforts at boosting the local economy of Oban in the winter period and holding their breath that the hillside in Glen Croe, on the approaches to Argyll and the Isles does not let go again.
