There was superb talent on display at this year’s Lochaber Provincial Mòd on Friday and Saturday.

And one Oban youngster was a star of the competition. Bethan Neil from Rockfield Primary got first in traditional song girls.

The two-day event was held at Fort William’s Gaelic school, Bun-Sgoil Ghàidhlig Loch Abar.

A spokesperson for the event said: ‘This year’s local Mòd was another great success and attracted entries from across Lochaber and as far afield as Oban, Dingwall, Beauly and Inverness.

‘Numbers held up well this year with close on 300 entries across 60 different events. The committee would like to thank all the children, adjudicators,parents, teachers and volunteers for making the two days so successful.

‘The only disappointing note from the weekend was the lack of senior entries, which is something we hope to address for next year. ‘
