What a weekend we have coming up.

If you had thought things would start getting a bit quieter now, think again.

Starting on Friday night, there are a few things on with the Corran Halls having a wrestling show and The View having a traditional music weekend with three different bands.

And with all the other venues offering live music, it promises to be a good night whether you decide to have a wee wander round the town to take in everything on offer or settle in somewhere and save your energy for Saturday.

On Saturday morning, Macmillan Cancer Support are hosting a coffee morning in Glencruitten Church Hall and in the afternoon The View is the place to be for The West Coast Whisky Feis from 1pm to 6pm. And to make it even better there’s gin on offer too.

If gin and whisky don’t tickle your fancy, then CHARTS showcase event in St John’s Cathedral with performances, talks, workshops and exhibitions might be something you would enjoy, with an evening reception hosted by Joy Dunlop from 6pm to 8pm.

On Sunday, we have the fantastic Oban Motorfest with Oban and District Classic Vehicle Club in Station Square from 11am to 4pm with more than 80 cars attending.

The Clan Mountain Bike Stunt Show will also be performing throughout the day at Motorfest, which is something all the little and big kids will certainly enjoy.

Argyll Beats Cardiovascular Disease are also hosting an open day at the hospital to celebrate 20 years including hands-on demonstrations between 2pm and 4pm which contributes to a very varied weekend of entertainment in Oban.

So although autumn seems to be here, it’s not time to hibernate yet and it doesn’t look as if things will be slowing down anytime soon.

The photo last week was of the edge of the pier next to the tunnel from the Black Lynn, this week’s photo is also central if you keep your eyes open.
