Yesterday's weather in Oban was all you could hope for in a seaside town - glorious blue sky, constant sunshine and a warm breeze. So you can imagine the 45 minutes we spent getting lost in a one-way system thanks to an incorrect map wasn't particularly enjoyable - looking at the glorious blue sky, constant hot sunshine pouring through the windows and a stuffy car rather than a warm breeze! Luckily, the people of Oban turned out to be a very kind bunch and led us (literally) to our destination - the beautiful St John's Cathedral.
So here we are, the Winds and Brass team, on the road to Oban after a hearty breakfast in Dunkeld, a quick coo over three cute black kittens playing in the hotel car park and a ridiculously hairy junction within the first five minutes of setting off this morning!
Last night's concert at Birnam Institute was a huge success. Set off the main road, the wooden-fronted Institute boasts a modern performance space, a cake friendly cafe and Beatrix Potter exhibition and shop.
