Remembrance services were held on Mull to remember those who had died in battle.

This year’s Armistice Day was particularly special because it marked the centenary of the end of the First World War.

On Mull, islanders celebrated the Battle’s Over event with an ’emotional ceremony’ at the harbour building in Tobermory on Saturday night.

Councillor for Oban South and the Isles, Mary-Jean Devon, said: ‘We had a fantastic night. Nearly 300 people turned up and it stayed dry. We managed to project all the pictures on the wall of the harbour building of people from Mull who went to war. It was very emotional.
