A human wave rolled along Oban seafront at the weekend calling for action on climate change.

About 60 people of all ages met on the Esplanade on Saturday as part of a protest organised by Argyll and Bute Time For Change.

Environmentalists Janie Steele and Ross Preston joined Saturday’s human wave along the esplanade with plastic debris they have cleared from beaches.

The turnout in torrential rain and high winds showed how much love there was for Oban as a coastal town and how much people want to protect it from rising sea-levels and flooding, said organiser Ellen Bird.

Oban’s blue wave was a drop in the ocean of thousands of grass-roots events being organised in towns and cities across the world on November 6 marking a global day of action as world leaders met in Glasgow at the COP26 Global Climate Summit.
