What a truly fantastic and exhausting time we have had on site at the Dunollie Kettle project in Oban!
In a little over a week we have built an outdoor cafe-kiosk on the Dunollie Estate in Oban. The Kettle, named after a key artefact that founded the Dunollie Museum’s collection, was designed for the preparation and serving of Victorian teas and cakes visitors to the Dunollie Estate.
Lots of credit goes to David Wyllie, Emily Stephen, Scott Simpson and John Bethune who worked together to come up with a striking design that fits in beautifully with its historic setting. We are also very grateful to the cavalry of volunteers who came to help including: Kirsty Cassels, Michael Goodger, Ryan Cole, Patsy James, Hugo Target, Lilian Tuohy Main, Douglas Walker. Everyone worked so hard even through the pouring rain to get to this stage and we couldn’t have asked for more from anyone!
The finishing touches will be carried out by local joiner Charlie Boyd in the coming weeks and it is hoped that the Kettle will be fully functioning for later in the summer.
