Oban 200 years celebrations

There were cheers when the stuck lorry eventually came off the Calmac on Friday. We left for Oban nearly 2 hours later. The rumour was that the lorry had been loaded on the wrong side.

After the Taynuilt highland games we set off for Oban to join the guiness world record attempt for 'strip the willow' being danced on the street. I decided to drive the back road via Glen lonan, but was stopped for 10 mins by a different jam.

Then onto Oban where over 2000 were gathering and dancing in sets of 8. All men had to wear some tartan. People were lined up along the pavements until the police closed the road and it was all out mayhem.

Afterwards we listened to the Oban and Taynuilt Gaelic choirs on the street and had dinner at piazza with 12 of us.
We look forward to seeing the entry in next year's book!
