A heritage centre and gin distillery are just some of the ideas Ardchattan has come up with for its former
school building. At a recent ‘have your say’ event, the session was buzzing with lively discussions around
opportunities it could offer if it belonged to the community.
Haggis and whisky festivals, food and craft markets, reindeer and fi reworks were just some of the
activities that were enjoyed as part of Oban Winter Festival. Thousands of people followed Santa down
George Street for the Reindeer Parade, before watching the town’s Christmas lights being switched on,
both organised by BID4Oban as part of the festival.
