Archive films about Scotland and the Western Isles are being screened at a free event in Stornoway this week.


Alongside films of Scotland's rural past will be celluloid gems made about the Western Isles and also some rare footage shot by islanders.


The films will be complemented by a post-screening panel discussion with special guests including Andy MacKinnon of Uist Film.


Event curator Shona Thomson said: “I’m really excited to be able to screen these films at the heart of the Stornoway community.


“It’s been fascinating looking for films that have been made by islanders as well as featuring the town.


“As well as a 1930s Lewis Carnival Queen, there will be some rare footage of life on rural Lewis and North Uist.”


The event takes place at 7pm on Wednesday in Stornoway library. Booking is essential.
