Kilmichael lad Finlay Ferguson has shown he’s a cut above the rest as he finishes his butchery training.

After completing his fifth year exams at Lochgilphead High School, Finlay left school and begin his apprenticeship at H D Ferguson & Son Butchers, Lochgilphead.

Now, three years later, 19-year-old Finlay has been awarded a level three Modern Apprenticeship in meat and poultry skills and a Scottish Vocational Qualification in food and drink operations.

Finlay said: ‘I’ve worked really hard for it so it’s great it has paid off and I’m now a fully trained butcher.’
