It is time to start thinking about Christmas, and a winter bazaar held at a Lochgilphead church was the perfect place to get in the mood.

With no fewer than than 37 stalls to explore at Christ Church on Bishopton Road, the cosy feel created by the marquee and church setting was enhanced by seasonal organ music drifting over shoppers’ heads.

Open on the evening of Friday November 3 and for much of the following day, the bazaar offered something for all tastes – from jewellery and glassware to sausages and hand-made Christmas decorations.
