Every November Oban comes alive as locals and visitors flock to the town to celebrate a festival of winter in the West Highlands.
Starting with the magical Santa parade, with reindeer, led by one of the area's top pipe bands the town lights up as the festive illuminations are switched on.
There is music, tasting, dancing, singing, creativity, haggis, whisky, sport, shopping, ceilidhs, lights, laughter, friendship, gatherings, all topped by fireworks from McCaig's tower.
This is not just an event. It is an experience.
