In February this year the children in GM1-3 in Sgoil an Rubha entered the Keep Scotland Beautiful Pocket Garden competition,

There were 340 entries from around Scotland and they have been chosen as one of the 45 finalists and the only finalist from the Western Isles.

They have been working hard over the past two months to design, grow, build and create their garden ready for the deadline of Friday 27 May.

The final will be held by on-line vote between June 8-20 before the winner is announced. 

The children chose to tell the story of Eilean Fraoich with a focus on the traditional way of life, crofting, the machair, loch fishing and a mini black house.
