Comhairle nan Eilean Siar has been successful in securing around £200,000 to help shape future heritage development in the islands.


The National Lottery funding will be used to devise a strategy to put heritage at the heart of joined-up thinking to create a better place for people to live and visit.


The proposal is to generate new links between heritage, arts and tourism to build economic growth and contribute to solving the challenging problems of population decline, access to work and access to recreation.


Donald Crichton, chairman of sustainable development at Comhairle nan Eilean Siar, said: “I am delighted that we have been able to secure this funding from The National Lottery’s new Great Place Scheme.


“The funding will help develop projects and collaborations centred on the islands’ unique culture and heritage to address issues such as poverty, employment, health and education.”
