The Rockfield Centre YAC and their ‘Monopoly: Oban Edition!' Project Update

The Rockfield Centre YAC, based in Oban, have now finished the main elements of their From Ordinary to Extraordinary project. Here we take a look at what they created and their plans for the future.


The Rockfield Centre YAC set out to explore important places and spaces in Oban. The YAC members wished to record a variety of locations through expert knowledge, oral histories and recordings with their new camera, purchased with funding from the FOTE project.

What was the main output from the project?

YAC members became particulary interested in a local cave system that was no longer accessible and decided to explore this further. Members interviewed a local expert about the caves and created their very own podcast. You can listen to the podcast here:

They also undertook a guided tour of Oban, inviting their friends and family along too. During the walking tour members chose places to stop and take 360 pictures.  All the pictures taken from the day and the 360 photos now have their own page on the Rockfield Centre website showcasing the groups involvement with FOTE project. You can see a selection of the photos below:
