Our Oban Tree is the 8th Tree of Tranquillity to be installed by SiMBA. We worked closely with the team at Dunollie Museum Castle and Grounds to choose a sheltered, quiet area. We wanted to make this a special place for everyone to visit, so in addition to the Tree of tranquillity we have also created a natural seating area and a pathway to provide easier access to the tree site.
We would like to thank the following for all their help and support with this project :
• The Trustees of Dunollie Museum Castle and Grounds, who have supported us throughout this project, provided a perfect location for our tree and have allowed us to create a pass allowing free lifetime access to anyone who has a leaf on the tree so that they can visit at any time.
• The Co-op in Inveraray who raised over £2600 to support this project
• Susan Simpson, our Highland Ambassador, her husband Andrew and her daughters Charis & Niamh who unveiled the Oban Tree of Tranquillity in memory of their siblings Eilidh Beth and Alex.
• The local Oban High School pathway students who have played a huge part in clearing the grounds and laying a path to the Tree site.
