Eadar Glinn care home in Oban has been given a clean bill of health after a flu outbreak forced it to shut its doors to new admissions two weeks ago.

Health bosses made the decision to shut the home in Drumore Road as a precaution and tests were carried out at the 25- bed home with the situation being reviewed daily.

Visitors who had felt unwell were being asked to stay away but a spokeperson for NHS Highlands has now confirmed the home has ‘fully re-opened’.
