Journeys To The Little Bay
Journeys to the Little Bay——–An t’Òban Latharnach
With the use of our research materials, sound recordings and our ‘Blether’ sessions we have been able to celebrate ‘Journey’s to the Little Bay’ with both families who have long connections to Oban and those that have moved here in recent years.
This project has enabled our heritage volunteers to build on the skills gained from previous small projects to progress further oral recordings, complete more research and present and share the stories to demonstrate the importance of “Journeys” to the growth of the town of Oban.

Over the course of the project the materials were interpreted and shared using a variety of focus weekends – Welcome to Oban; Railway Weekend and our Finale Sound and Film Focus.
The wealth of stories have instigated more discussion and the sharing of memories which will be added to our growing collection.
Please visit our Soundcloud page to hear Journeys to the Little Bay sound clip memories.
With support from our volunteer camera club and our research team a collage of Then and Now photographs can be viewed below for all to enjoy:
This small Heritage Lottery Funded project has now completed, however the The Heritage Group continues to meet and plan for future activity and can be contacted via Mhairi@therockfieldcentre.org.uk should you wish to be involved.
