Six island local authorities will receive a share of £4.45 million to assist critical projects on climate change, population retention and tourism.

A total of 11 projects across 31 islands have received funding for the current financial year as part of the Islands Programme.

The Programme supports the implementation of the 2019 National Islands Plan, helping to make the Scottish islands even better places to live, study, work and raise a family.

Projects include a new visitor centre and EV charging points in Old Man of Storr, nine 'Island Pit Stops' at Arran and Cumbrae providing better facilities for visitors, a new nursery at Kirkwall to replace an existing building earmarked for demolition and improvement of critical seafront infrastructure at Tobermory.
