The fish were being transferred to Grieg Seafood Shetland Ltd's seawater fish farm and, in the process, were lost over the side of the delivery boat this week (May 22.)

Any resident in the Highlands are encouraged to try out a new video consulting system from NHS Highland.

The sessions take place every Friday between 1pm to 4pm and are intended to allow members of the public to use the system before they have a real video appointment with a consultant.  

NHS Highland say that all the user needs is a reliable internet connection and a device in their home - like a smartphone, laptop or tablet - that can make video calls (like Skype or Facetime). Calls need to be made from the Chrome or Safari browser.

A major exhibition entitled Wild and Majestic: Romantic Visions of Scotland will examine how Scotland gained its reputation as a land of wilderness, heroism and history.

Gaelic language and culture feature throughout the exhibition, with the main narrative presented in both English and Gaelic.

The event will also feature a partnership on Gaelic content between National Museums Scotland and Sabhal Mòr Ostaig.  

Experts from Sabhal Mòr Ostaig have also assisted on the panel texts which will be presented in both English and Gaelic.
