Youngsters at Oban’s First Steps Nursery had a big surprise when Santa paid a visit.
Keeping a safe social distance, Santa took a break from overseeing the elves in their North Pole workshop to call in and say hello to the excited children.
Senior practitioner Millie Griffiths said: ‘Thank you Santa for taking time away from your busy workshop in the North Pole to come and see us. We hope the elves behaved.’
