Following our appeal last week for names for the pirate ship in the under-fives playpark at Atlantis Leisure Centre in Oban, we were inundated with suggestions and have now narrowed it down to the top five.

The child who suggested the most popular ship’s name, which will be voted for by the public, will win a brand new iPad mini courtesy of Scottish Sea Farms.

The five names to choose from are:

  • The Treasure Seeker
  • Little Bay Adventurer
  • Salty-Dog
  • Cheeky Monkey
  • Wee Boatie

The closing date is noon on Thursday September 14.

Oban Community Playpark is opening the new under-fives facility at the Atlantis birthday party on September 30 and organisers would love to see all the people who have helped over the years come and celebrate this massive community achievement.
