Ishbel Hawson, who runs Polly’s Coffee Stop – regularly based at lock 10 on the Crinan Canal – was behind the ‘Carols around the Kelpies’ at Ardrishaig Pier before Christmas.

Seeing the kelpies looking a bit un-festive Ishbel decided, with Scottish Canals’ permission, to decorate them with lights.

Ishbel said: ‘As it got darker, we realised how fantastic they looked. When I came to take the lights down in the morning, the canals team were so impressed they asked if they could keep them up.’
