The Oban High School Pipe Band, along with local councillors and tourism officials, helped Scottish Water celebrate the opening of Scotland’s newest Top Up Tap, which will provide free hydration for visitors and locals while on the go.
The taps are part of Scottish Water’s Your Water Your Life campaign to encourage more people to drink tap water on- the-go to stay hydrated, save money and protect the environment by using refillable bottles instead of buying bottled water.
Welcoming the installation of the tap, Andrew Spence, of Bid4oban said: “We are delighted that Oban has been chosen by Scottish Water for this new initiative. The new tap is in a central location in a busy thoroughfare and that means it will be very convenient for residents and visitors. Hopefully this will encourage people to use reusable bottles and so minimise the use of single-use plastics and bottles.”
While you are visiting Oban, take advantage of the Top Up Tap, located near the clock tower in Station Square, near the train, bus and ferry terminals.
