Love is in the air this month, and we celebrate all things amore with beauty tips, recipes and ideas for wining and dining your sweetheart.

We meet Uyu, learn what it takes to become a ballerina and what audiences can look forward to in this production. Crimeworm takes a look at her favourite fi ction from 2016, and we meet local hip hop artist Kevin Irvine, aka ‘K9 Kev’, who has helped put Oban on the musical map. And we welcome new health and wellness columnist and yoga instructor Ruth Paterson, who shares tips on loving yourself this Valentine’s Day. Don’t forget to give us a ‘Like’ on our Facebook page and keep up to date with news, features, events and activities going on in the Oban area. We always love to hear from you and see your photos.
