Islanders throughout the Outer Hebrides are being encouraged to join in a consultation about the future for their communities.
 
This supports the development of the National Islands Plan as set out in Part 2 of the Islands (Scotland) Act 2018.

Point and Sandwick Trust has created a fund for MSc students in partnership with Lews Castle College UHI, contributing an initial £10,000, with the equivalent amount invested by the college.

The community wind farm charity will commit £2,500 each to four students and intends that the funding will become a revolving grant, once the first £10,000 is exhausted.

Art on land and sea came together on Friday evening at An Lanntair Arts Centre as Wave Migration, by painter, screen printer and surfer Laura Maynard, brought in an excited crowd of people for its official launch.

Laura thanked all the surfers who figure in the exhibition – 15 in total – for being so willing to work with her, and also thanked her family for their support through the development life of the project.

The exhibition – including an iconic campervan and a display of surfboards, fills the main gallery and overflows – like a bursting wave – into the reception area of An Lanntair.
