The Clan Macquarrie Community Centre in Borve is to get almost £33,000 from the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund (CCF).
The CCF, managed by Keep Scotland Beautiful, awards funding to help tackle climate change by running projects that reduce local carbon emissions. They’re supporting an energy efficiency project to be run by Clan Macquarrie volunteers, which will improve energy efficiency at the centre itself and offer free support across the wider community.

The Flannan Isles Exhibition and Memorial, which commemorates the tragic and mysterious loss of the three Light Keepers in December 1900, will be opening again for 2019.
