Football is fun and for everyone, as demonstrated by primary school age children who went along to Canal Parks in Caol recently as part of Highlife Highland Active Schools’ Get Into Summer’ programme of activities.

South Lochaber Thistle (SLT) Football Club manager Alan Gray and first team player Fraser Clark, helped in Caol by Jason Findlay, led the activities.

Alan and his team have also been running sessions in Mallaig and Kinlochleven, where SLT committee member Albie Robertson leant a hand.

Every session proved popular with many children taking advantage of the good weather to get outdoors and on to the playing fields.

Strontian is the next destination for the footballing fun, while many other organised activities take place across the area. Photographs: Iain Ferguson, alba.photos
