What a fantastic event Peat and Diesel put on at the Corran Halls last weekend. Despite the weather and the anxiety about the Covid passports there was a great crowd who were well looked after by the Corran Halls and event staff who were all really friendly and helpful.

Now I’m all ready for Livewire this weekend – if you’re a rock fan they put on an amazing show. I’ve also got to fit in a couple of visits to the cinema this week – the new James Bond is a must. Booking tickets will be advisable for that, and also a film called Free Guy with Ryan Reynolds which finishes on Friday. The cinema really comes into its own as we go into autumn and winter – there’s nothing nicer than losing yourself in a cosy cinema with a good film and forgetting about the rain and wind outside.

Autumn can be one of the most beautiful seasons in this area, however, and Dunollie Castle, Museum and Grounds plan on making the most of it with outdoor and Halloween activities planned for the month, have a look on the Oban What’s On website for more details or follow Oban Town Diary on Facebook to keep up to date with what’s happening in the area.

Don’t forget if you have an event coming up to let us know the details either by submitting an event on the website or calling the BID4Oban office on 01631 569915 to let us know about it. Oban What’s On is also really useful for making sure your event doesn’t clash with another, which was the original idea behind the town diary.

The photograph last week was of the wee garden opposite West Coast Motors office where someone has hidden a painted stone, this week’s photograph is more obvious.
