Fun days in Whiting Bay
Last week it was Lochranza and this week Whiting Bay was the place to be for fun. Throughout the 1980s, the village held a fun week every summer but by 1994 it had fallen into abeyance. This year it appears to have risen from the ashes and, after a variety of activities during the week, the fun came to a climax over the weekend.
