This week’s Oban Times carries a health message with cases of Covid on the rise across Argyll and Oban being flagged up as an area of concern. Kathie also brings us news  about 200 women having their routine breast screening appointments cancelled in town after faults developed at the visiting mobile unit and charity Marie Curie is looking for someone to step into the shoes of their champion fundraiser Lillian Kermode who after leading a team of supporters for 13 years and helping raise more than £60,000 is looking to take a little step back from the task.Ellis reports how ferry spotters lined the terminal in Oban on Tuesday to mark the arrival of the MV Pentalina catamaran undergoing berthing trials at terminals along the West Coast as Transport Scotland looks to solve a growing headache over the lack of resilience in the much-loved, but ageing, CalMac fleet.
And the family of super busker Aiden MacLeod who saved a runaway toddler from toppling off the dockside have thanked the community for their heartwarming well wishes and generosity.


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