The shortage of housing and flats places to rent takes centre stage in The Oban Times on Thursday as calls are made to limit the number of holiday lets and Airbnbs. We discuss the plight of a couple facing summer in a tent, and reports that out-of-town gazumpers are tabling bids up to £70,000 over the asking price for properties. Also in this week’s podcast is a plea to dog owners from North Connel farmer Julie Campbell after a horrific attack on her pet sheep. On a lighter note, we feature the upcoming National Carers Weeks to make sure these unsung heroes are visible and valued. There’s also some heartwarming community cheer from the Nant Drive area as local youngsters, parents and residents roll up their sleeves to drum up funds to replace the equipment at the Feochan Gardens play park.

All this and more online and in this Week’s Oban Times and online
