Read your Oban Times … in Antarctica!

The Oban Times may be a local newspaper but our reach stretches a long way. Reader Frithjof Kuepper sent us this photograph of himself reading a recent edition in Antarctica. Frithjof wrote: ‘I am currently on an expedition to Antarctica, in the vicinity of Rothera Research Station, the UK’s major base in Antarctica. As a long-time former Oban and Connel resident (and SAMS scientist, based at Dunstnage from 2003-2011, prior to moving to the University of Aberdeen), I have taken a copy of The Oban Times with me on this endeavour (in fact, the copy on sale while visiting Oban prior to leaving the UK in December), which I very much enjoy reading here, with lots of nostalgia for Oban and Argyll, and thinking of my friends there. Kind regards and greetings from Antarctica.’
