This fascinating photo of The Carradale Choristers was handed into the Argyllshire Advertiser by reader John MacVean.

It shows the young choir on their way to a competition, ready for the unison singing competition.

The caption reads: ‘All dressed up for their parts in the Unison Singing competition at the Mod, these young members of Carradale Junior Gaelic Choir, whose singing “held the audience spellbound”, won the Shiant Shield at Dunoon yesterday.’
