The Highlands and Islands Music and Dance Festival, one of Oban’s biggest events, got underway on Friday welcoming thousands of people to the town with their friends and families.
Alongside all the visitors, top class dancing and music there is a superb fringe event taking place for the whole family.
The event is run by an amazing team of volunteers and brings at least £1.5 million into the local economy every year.
