An Oban museum and castle has been granted a provisional premises licence to sell alcohol in its outdoor areas.

Dunollie Museum, Castle and Grounds management had their plans heard by the Argyll and Bute Licensing Board at a meeting on Tuesday June 28.

The premises is awaiting a building standards certificate, but its general manager assured councillors that the document was expected soon.

And the board unanimously moved to allow a provisional licence for the site.

General manager Emma Sutcliffe said: ‘We are looking to licence some of the areas and we have been quite specific about where these activities can take place.

‘It could be a very good way for us to build up a side of the business which we are hopeful will create financial sustainability for the future.’
