The postman made a Lochgilphead girl’s day when she received her Mòd gold medal – just a week or two late.

Ella Fyfe from Lochgilphead won the medal in the eight-year-old learners solo singing competition at this year’s Royal National Mòd in Glasgow in October.

Ella, who started singing when she was five, said: ‘I was so excited when it arrived. I really enjoy singing so it’s very special.’
