A golfing foursome from Machrihanish and Tarbert, known as the Kintyre Tractormen, travelled to Glencruitten, Oban, to play in memory of their friend John MacEachen.

John’s family host a charity golf day every year to raise funds for local cancer charities after John died from a brain tumour.

Tarbert golf club member Duncan Johnstone was a rugby teammate of John and he attends the event annually with the three other ‘tractormen’: John Rennie from Machrihanish, Iain MacAlister, Tarbert and Iain Johnstone, Tarbert

The charity match was a success, raising in excess of £7,500, with all money going to local cancer charities.
