Britain’s largest cruise ship sails on to the OT front page this week. Iona, with room for 5,200 guests and four swimming pools, anchored off her namesake island this week on her maiden voyage. Kathie also brings us news of work starting on Kerrera’s long-awaited road that will connect northenders to the south of the island and the lifeline ferry service over to the mainland, if all goes to plan it should take two to three months to complete. CalMac has announced unbooked campervans, caravans and motorhomes will no longer be able to join stand-by queues so more space can be freed up for smaller vehicles without sleeping and cooking facilities needing to get off the islands. Island residents who show proof of address and whose only transport is a camper or motorhome will however be allowed to get in the line. Fiona has been tackling the growing problem of weeds this week – or rather the killing of them after council workers were spotted carrying out their annual spraying. We also have a round-up of sport for you.


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